Summary
Abstract: Following the serious grasshopper outbreaks of 1986, a pilot program was
defined between the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Agency for
International Development. The primary goal of this program was to develop,
test, and evaluate a near-real time monitoring procedure by using satellite
remote-sensing and geographic-information-system technologies in support of
grasshopper control programs ... View entire text

Quality The satellite data were recorded by NOAA-9 and NOAA-11
satellites and transmitted to the National Climatic Data
Center in Washington, D.C. Approximately three scenes per week
were acquired for most of northern Africa. The satellite data
were sent to the EROS Data Center where each scene was entered
into the AVHRR Data Reception and Processing System (ADAPS) and
previewed for cloud cover and to determine whether a country of
interest was covered by the near nadir (central) portion of the
scene. Scenes that passed this initial screening were processed
further by ADAPS.
