Paper Abstract

Remote sensing is the technique of acquiring, processing, and interpreting images and multi channels spectral data, acquired from optical imager sensors mounted on aircraft and satellite platforms recording the interaction between investigated objects and electromagnetic energy. Remote sensing application in Earth observation begins with the design and development of equipment for carrying out research of the monitored objects remotely and without disturbing their integrity. Ground-truth data in Earth observation of the environment and in the remote sensing investigations are very important. In this work remote sensing images are used for mineral exploration in different applications for mapping geology and recognizing soils and rocks by their spectral signatures. We are used Landsat, ASTER and Sentinel satellites images used to interpret both structures, soils and rocks. For data verification hyperspectral systems USB 2000 and NIRQUEST 512.2 of Ocean Optics Inc. are used in laboratory and field spectrometric measurements. They provide to define finest spectral characteristics of soil minerals and rocks for their identification. The obtained spectral data are compared with similar data from different instruments for Earth observation included in the spectral libraries. They correspond to the shape of the spectral signature in the same spectral range obtained with other spectrometers. These promising results encourage us to plan the next campaigns for the field spectroscopy measurements in different regions of Bulgaria.
