Paper Abstract

A new airborne imaging spectrometer has been developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to exploit many earth resources. The apparatus utilizes 210 adjacent spectral bands ranging from 0.40 to 2.45 um. During the first measurement campaign in the summer 1987, the spectrometer was flown over a site containing both hydrothermally altered and unaltered rocks well exposed at the surface. The related radiometrically corrected image set has been available to the investigators. Using the software developed at our Institute, a set of images of the site in any of the 210 spectral bands or the spectral signature of any single pixel can be displayed. In addition particular attention is paid to evaluate the data accuracy and the atmospheric effects utilizing the LOWTRAN 6 computer code. First results of rock outcrops classification are presented and discussed.
