Welcome to FEM 2017 Pre-Conference Short Course!

Prof. Carlos R. Souza Filho, The University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil

Goal: The focus of the workshop is on multi-scale applications of remote sensing technologies to mineral exploration, from rock core and mine wall rock data to airborne and orbital data.

Course description: Principles of visible, near infrared, shortwave infrared and longwave infrared spectroscopy. Mineral spectroscopy and interpretation techniques. Multispectral vs hyperspectral systems. Core imaging vs core profiling systems. Image processing and information extraction techniques. Applications in target generation at regional scale and in mineral and rock mapping at mine and borehole scale.

Details of content: A new array of passive remote sensors operated on ground, airborne (aircraft and UAVs) and orbital platforms with multispectral, hyperspectral and ultraespectral coverage in the VIS-NIR-SWIR-TIR range (0.4-14µm), now provides the geologic community with both public and proprietary data unprecedented in history. These Geotechnologies have aided in the discovery and sustainable production of mineral resources from innovative approaches….
