NASA will conduct a radar-imaging mission by its Gulfstream III environmental research aircraft over areas of the lower Mississippi River that are nearing flood stage on Monday, June 6th.

The flight complements a multi-year Levee Assessment by Remote Sensing project led by Mississippi State University professor and GRI researcher Dr. James Aanstoos and with a similar levee stability project in California. The study is intended to rapidly assess the condition of levees and to identify, classify, and prioritize potential problems.
