Airborne Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging for Mineral Mapping
Minerals such as silicates, aluminosilicates (feldspar), magnesium silicates (serpentine) and olivines are among the most commonly encountered in the environment.
Airborne mineral mapping of these minerals using conventional visible-near infrared (VNIR, 0.4-1.4 μm) and shortwave infrared (SWIR, 1.4-3 μm) sensors can be very challenging since the Si-O bounds are featureless or exhibit very weak spectral features in these spectral ranges.
