This is going to be the same as last year right??? Earth's Hydrosphere...

Who knows? :D In all likelihood it'll be the same.

According to soinc.org's Short Event Descriptions, Hydrosphere will be the focus of Remote Sensing again this year.

awesome, i really enjoyed last years topic... wasn't too large of a topic and also wasn't too narrow to make it too easy. I feel that the maps and charts should be little more hi-res because it was sometimes harder to tell the difference between colors and boundary lines

Does anyone know how useful the Remote Sensing CD in the Science Olympiad Store is?

I'm doing a practice test and I can't find where I got it from. It might be the test exchange but I checked and it's not there. Is there any possibility that it was removed? The first page is a True/False page with the first question being:

The human eye can separate 100 times more gray scale values than it can color combination. The following sections are Multiple Choice, Short Answer, Problems, and then Imagery. I can't find this test online for some odd reason.

Well, if it was removed, there should at least be a link to it in the history, though the file might have been deleted.

Hm, my friend who did that test said it was from the Test Exchange. Looking at the history I cannot find any activity of it being removed. There are two questions that I cannot find the answer to. Could someone post the answer to these (not numbered the same as in the test itself)?

1. The best satellite for isolating chlorophyll absoption would be:
A Spot
B Landsat MSS
C GOES
D Landsat TM

2. A plane flying at 12,000 feet has two cameras, both cameras have the same focal length, one camera uses a 35 mm film size and the other uses a 240 mm film size. How would this affect the ground area recorded by the camera? A diagram would help. 2 pts

I'm not sure what that would be, since I think all of those satellites cover chlorophyll's peak absorption. But several bands Landsat's TM are designed for measuring various properties of vegetation. I have no idea about the second question.
