Paper Abstract

It is well known that the geological studies have not been carried out in detail in Mt. Kunlun, because it is difficult to study in field. For this reason, a study project with remote sensing method has been carried out in this area, a lot of useful information is extracted through image processing for Landsat TM (12 scenes) and Radarsat SAR data. By combining geology, geophysics, geochemistry and remote sensing data, we have divided regional geological structure units on the base of image feature of remote sensing. Analyzed geology conditions, summarized the relation of geological structure units and mineralizations and predicted the potential areas of exploration. In 1997, the geological studies in field have been carried out and verified the potential areas of exploration (especially for gold and copper deposits). It proved space remote sensing technology has great advantages in geological exploration of this kind area.
