RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF MINING AND REMOTE SENSING

RECHERCHE MINIERE ET TELEDETECTION

The evaluation of the possible use of remote sensing in mining research must take into account the characteristics of sensors, the reliability of results, and costs. This explains the importance of aerial photography, satellite images and radar graphs in geological investigations. As regards other techniques giving more specific information, comparison must be made with traditional methods: this is the case of infra-red thermal investigation which is able to detect subsurface structures, and of multi-spectral remote sensing that can show abnormalities in vegetation growth linked with geochemical abnormal features.
