Utilization of aerial photography in peat production; Ilmakuvauksien kaeyttoemahdollisuudet turvetuotannon apuvaelineenae

Abstract

The technical and economical applicability of different aerial photographic methods for intensification of peat production and production control have been studied in this research. According to the research results, obtained in the aerial photography and ground measurements carried out during the summer 1991, the photographic methods (both panchromatic and near infra-red) are suitable for coarse determination of quality variation of surface peat. Especially, the light poorly humified surfaces are readily observable from the aerial photographs. Additionally, the photographic methods can be used for control of the condition of ditching on production mires, for environmental monitoring, and for determination of the dimensions of the production area and stockpiles (the strip length, the surface area, the volume of the stockpile, the surface levelling, etc.) Especially, the large scale determination of stockpile volumes using aerial photographs seems to be suitable for development. According to the photography in the summer 1991, it is possible to detect areas of different moisture content using thermal photography, so it might be suitable for determination of the basic drainage level of a production field. However, more research is needed for determination of the accuracy of the method. Thermal photography has been videly used for control of self heating  More>>
