Metrics details. Imaging spectroscopy, the collection of spatially co-registered images in many contiguous spectral bands, has been developed for remote sensing of the Earth utilizing reflectance or luminescence. False—color images obtained from the SWIR imaging system are shown to give improved visualization of changes from paintings having large and complex reworkings, e. False—color images and reflectance spectra allowed definitive identification of restoration in a late 13th century Sienese painting that cannot be seen by traditional infrared reflectography.
Future human missions to the surface of the Moon and Mars will involve scientific exploration requiring new support tools to enable rapid and high quality science decision-making. The Summary Catalog provides essential descriptive information for each mineral, including name based on the International Mineralogical Association recommendation , chemical formula, mineral group, surface abundance on planetary bodies, geological significance in the context of planetary exploration, number of collected VNIR and Raman spectra, likelihood of detection using different spectral methods, and bibliographic references evidencing their detection in extraterrestrial or terrestrial analog environments. To populate this library, we collected VNIR and Raman spectra for mineral entries in the Summary Catalog from open-access archives and analyzed them to select the ones with the best spectral features. We also supplemented this collection with our own bespoke measurements. Additionally, we compiled the chemical compositions for all the minerals based on their empirical formula, to allow identification using the measured abundances provided by LIBS and XRF analytical instruments. When integrated into an operational support system like ESA's Electronic Fieldbook EFB system, the Mineralogical Database can be used as a real-time and autonomous decision support tool for sampling operations on the Moon, Mars and during astronaut geological field training. It provides both robust spectral libraries to support mineral identification from instrument outputs, and relevant contextualized information on detected minerals.

Assignments of the two diagnostic features were made for two combination bands and by regression with IR fundamental absorptions. Furthermore, the determinant factors of the NIR band position were found by comparing the band positions with relative components. The findings provide an interpretation of the NIR band formation and demonstrate a simple way to use NIR spectroscopy to discriminate between chlorites with different components. More importantly, spectroscopic detection of mineral chemical variations in chlorites provides geologists with a tool with which to collect information on hydrothermal alteration zones from hyperspectral-resolution remote sensing data. Chlorites are ubiquitous ferromagnesian phyllosilicates most commonly found in epimetamorphic rocks as hydrothermal alteration products and after erosion in sediments together with various clay minerals [ 1 , 2 ].
Lyon, Eugene A. Burns; Analysis of rocks and minerals by reflected infrared radiation. Economic Geology ;; 58 2 : — The earliest studies of minerals by reflected and emitted infrared radiation were those of Coblentz 1, 2. Since then mineralogical uses of reflected infrared radiation have been restricted primarily to studies of glass, and to minerals like quartz and cristobalite which play a prominent part in the understanding of glass structures. In a similar manner infrared emission studies have been restricted almost exclusively to ceramics and refractories.
Clay minerals are the most reactive and important inorganic components in soils, but soil mineralogy classifies as a minor topic in soil sciences. Revisiting soil mineralogy has been gradually required. Clay minerals in soils are more complex and less well crystallized than those in sedimentary rocks, and thus, they display more complicated X-ray diffraction XRD patterns. Traditional characterization methods such as XRD are usually expensive and time-consuming, and they are therefore inappropriate for large datasets, whereas visible and near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy VNIR is a quick, cost-efficient, and nondestructive technique for analyzing soil mineralogic properties of large datasets. The main objectives of this review are to bring readers up to date with information and understanding of VNIR as it relates to soil mineralogy and attracts more attention from a wide variety of readers to revisit soil mineralogy. We begin our review with a description of fundamentals of VNIR.

Gilgit-Baltistan region is covering the northern most part of Pakistan where the rocks of the Kohistan-Ladakh island arc and Karakoram plate are exposed. The area has greater potential for precious and base metals deposits which are needed to be explored through spectroscopy and remote sensing techniques. Minerals and rocks can nowadays be identified through the measurement of their absorption and reflectance features by spectroscopic analysis.
Raman spectroscopy has undergone rapid development over the last few decades. The ability to acquire a spectrum in only a few tens of milliseconds allows use of Raman mapping as a routine technique. However, with respect to classical single spectrum measurement, this technique is not still as widely used as it could be, in particular for mineralogy and petrography. Here, we explain the advantages of Raman mapping for obtaining additional information compared to single spot analyses. The principle and the limits of the technique are first explained in 2D and 3D. Data processing techniques are then described using different types of rocks and minerals to demonstrate the utility of Raman mapping for obtaining information about the general composition, identification of small phases, as well as for distinguishing minerals that are spectrally very close. Finally, a gallery of images from representative samples is used to illustrate the discussion.
Оно будет громадным, - застонал Джабба. - Ясно, что это будет число-монстр. Сзади послышался возглас: - Двухминутное предупреждение. Джабба в отчаянии бросил взгляд на ВР. Последний щит начал рушиться. Техники сновали по комнате.
В нашей стране происходит много хорошего, но немало и плохого. Кто-то должен иметь возможность оценивать и отделять одно от другого. В этом и заключается наша работа. Это наш долг. Нравится нам это или нет, но демократию от анархии отделяет не очень-то прочная дверь, и АНБ ее охраняет. Хейл задумчиво кивнул: - Quis custodiet ipsos custodes.
