Chapter 4 Quantum Spectral Libraries of Minerals in Optical Remote Sensing Data

Uncertainties regarding spectral reflectance of mineral identifications implemented in commercial and open sources software are dominant problems in the field of remote sensing mineral applications. Numerous spectral libraries exist and are developed by different well-known organizations such as the USGS (United States Geological Survey) spectral libraries. Yet, there is no great promise for extremely high accuracy applications over different world regions. In other words, a similar application of spectral library delivers a different level of accuracy from one region to another. Indeed, spectral reflectance of minerals such as USGS spectral library examined in the ...
