Paper Abstract

Detailed ground work has been undertaken to study the correlations among Landsat TM spectral data, lithologic units, geobotanical forest associations, and geomorphic site parameters in the deciduous forests of the Ridge and Valley Province, Pennsylvania. There is a strong correlation between lithologic unit and forest association; this correlation together with a strong geomorphic component is seen in the Landsat TM data.
