In contrast, pavement and compacted or indurated soils impede infiltration and increase surface runoff. Runoff from impervious surfaces consequently flow to streams, rivers, and storm sewers and contribute to flooding and contamination of surface waters. 1 Land Use and Curve Numbers Land use impact is significant for hydrologic analysis because it is a key variable in hydrologic models that predict surface runoff from precipitation events. In traditional hydrologic analysis developed by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), this relationship is described by the runoff curve number (CN), an empirical approximation of the runoff from a precipitation event in a specific drainage basin.

The spatial perspective of remotely sensed imagery provides insight into interactions between varied land covers and land uses. It allows anticipating threats of hazardous materials for water quality, forecasting variations in water supply, and assessing diversions for agriculture, industry, recreation, and other confining impacts of hazardous spills along with mitigating such threats. Remote sensing technologies have significant potential for understanding climate change impacts. The land use and land cover analyses outlined in this chapter provide some of the most important tools for sustaining, and improving, our ability to monitor the extent and quality of water resources.
