Application of Thermography to Karst Hydrology
C. Warren Campbell, Mohamed Abd El Latif and Joseph W. Foster


Thermography was used to locate hydrological “features” in karst watersheds. The approach was demonstrated by flying a thermal camera over the Keel Mountain area of north Alabama. Known features were identified and features not on United State Geological Survey topographic maps and unknown to the authors were discovered. Springs with flow rates less than 3 liters/sec and a region of strong infiltration in a losing stream were easily identified.
