Abstract

Low-spatial resolution satellite imagery from the NOAA-10 polar-orbiting meteorological satellite was analyzed to determine if central New Mexico grasslands infested by broom snakeweed could be discriminated from unaffected areas. Distinctive phenological characteristics of broom snakeweed, including an early season growth flush and late season flowering, enable moderate to heavily infested areas to be separated from grasslands having few or no weeds present. The procedure used shows promise as a tool for locating and monitoring brown snakeweed and other weeds growing on shortgrass prairie.
