First Look: Hyperspectral Images from Neuquén neoBASIN Project

I thought you might be interested in seeing some early data from our project in Argentina’s Neuquén Basin. Shown below are three side-by-side comparisons of airborne multi-spectral data. The images on the left were taken with a satellite owned and operated by NASA known as ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer). ASTER data is readily …

Satellite Imagery Reveals Unknown Pyramids

Pyramid

Yet another application of airborne multi-spectral imaging. Even with the lower channel counts (and more limited ‘fingerprinting’ capabilities) of satellite-based remote sensing systems, U.S. archeologists were able to use data from NASA and commercial satellites to identify more than 17 pyramids, 1,000 tombs and other buildings dating to the time of the Pharaohs. The infrared …
