  • Papers and discussions concerning the geotechnical applications of remote sensing and remote data transmission, sources of remotely sensed data, and glossaries of remote sensing and remote data transmission terms, acronyms, and abbreviations are presented. Aspects of remote sensing use covered include the significance of lineaments and their effects on ground-water systems, waste-site use and geotechnical characterization, the estimation of reservoir submerging losses using CIR aerial photographs, and satellite-based investigation of the significance of surficial deposits for surface mining operations. Other topics presented include the location of potential ground subsidence and collapse features in soluble carbonate rock, optical Fourier analysis ofmore » surface features of interest in geotechnical engineering, geotechnical applications of U.S. Government remote sensing programs, updating the data base for a Geographic Information System, the joint NASA/Geosat Test Case Project, the selection of remote data telemetry methods for geotechnical applications, the standardization of remote sensing data collection and transmission, and a comparison of airborne Goodyear electronic mapping system/SAR with satelliteborne Seasat/SAR radar imagery.« less
  • This book contains 14 papers. Some of the titles are: A satellite-based investigation of the significance of surficial deposits for surface mining operations; Applications of spatial statistics to analyzing multiple remote sensing data sets; An approach to the updating of a data base for a geographic information system: land use and land cover data; and The Joint NASA/Geosat test case project.
  • Study to develop a software methodology to geocode MIVIS hyperspectral images collected by the CNR LARA Project. Gol of the study is to integrate the airborne Position and Attitude System with the image data to obtain geoceded images at a medium-small scale (1: 15000 - 1: 10000). 4 refs., 4 figs.
  • Both noise removal and accurate registration of remote sensing aircraft data are important for energy and mineral resource studies. Accurate geometric registration to a map base is required for studying spatial associations of anomalies, for accurate field checking of results, and for comparison with other data sets. Noise may be present due to the instrument and/or the aircraft motion. Innovative technique for noise removal and registration were applied to thermal infrared multispectral scanner (TIMS) aircraft data of the Carlin gold deposit in northeastern Nevada and McClure Mountain in central Colorado. The techniques presented are applicable to any remotely sensed datamore » set and are particularly useful for aircraft data.« less
  • Soon after the launch of the initial ERTS satellite in 1972 several facts became evident. 1) The multispectral scanner, which takes data and processes it in digital form, was a powerful new reconnaissance tool added to the geologist's list for evaluating prospective hydrocarbon and mineral producing areas. 2) Based on NASA laboratory and field experiments, if additional spatial resolution(from 80 to 30 m pixels) and additional spectral resolution (more bands in the near infrared and infrared) were added, the tool would be more valuable for the geologist. 3) There were inherent errors in the system affecting both geometric and radiometricmore » accuracy. During the 10 years following the 1972 initial launch, three more Landsat-type satellites were launched with the latest, Landsat 4, incorporating many of the changes requested by geologists. The new multispectral scanner has seven spectral bands covering portions of the visible, near infrared, and infrared. The ground resolution now is about 30 m (100 ft). The purpose of this presentation is to introduce some processed images from the Landsat 4 thematic mapper, compare these images in terms of quality and information content to Landsat MSS, and to discuss methods of integrating these data into an exploration program. Methods of calibrating the images as well as methods of combining multiple diverse data sets also will be covered. Examples of several geologic areas will be shown where multiple types of digital processing provide different types of information of the areas. Methods for extracting lithologic, structural, and vegetation cover information also are covered.« less
