The paper demonstrates the application of remote sensing techniques to the collection of data on water quality in tropical regions characterized by peatswamp hydrology. The Landsat Thematic Mapper sensor's 0.40-0.52 μm waveband is successfully utilized for identifying and delineating organic plumes at the estuaries of rivers, streams and small drainage channels in a selected study area of the Singapore region. The results are related to the present industrial and tourist development scenario in the Singapore-Johor-Riau growth triangle, and to water quality standards defined within the region.
