Abstract:

Remote multispectral photographic sensing of the earths surface may be a feasible means of identifying and discriminating between inorganic terrestrial materials differing in composition or physical characteristics. Simultaneous airborne and ground-based photographic and photometric studies of such sites as Mono Craters, California, indicate that within the range of the photographic spectrum 2900 A to 14000 A, the most promising region for the geologist and other earth scientists could be the wavelengths outside the visible spectrum.
