Summary
Abstract: E4 - ORNL Landsat Land Use Classification

The Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) conducted a major field research
campaign in Nashville/Middle Tennessee area in June and July 1994 and
1995. The goal of this study was to improve scientific understanding
of the processes that control the production and distribution of ozone
in the troposphere.

Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) data, acquired in 1991 and 1992, and
field survey data were used to develop a classification image
representing 12 land use categories for most of the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory study area. The 12 categories include: loblolly pine,
mixed conifer/deciduous, young/dense conifer, high-, medium-, and
low-desity oak deciduous, shrubs and grasses, agriculture, water, bare
soil, urban/paved, and unclassified.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) was the coordinator for the 1995
Southern Oxidants Study Nashville/Middle Tennessee Ozone Study. See:
