Remote Sensing mineral exploration: Comparison
Please note this is a comparison between Version 2 by Rita Xu and Version 5 by Catherine Yang.

My scholarly interests range widely, from mineral exploration to environmental issues such as geo-hazard, structural mapping, geothermal and geomorphic and coastal geology investigations. Subsequently, I have conducted several research projects for geological mapping, disaster management and environmental modeling using a variety of satellite remote sensing data such as the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER), Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper+ (ETM+), Landsat-8, Advanced Land Imager (ALI), Hyperion and Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) satellite data in arid and semi-arid terrains, Antarctic, Arctic and tropical environments. H INDEXIN SCOPUS : 20, Number of documents:110, Total citation: 1187

  • Mineral exploration
  • Gold exploration

My experiences in satellite remote sensing technology and geospatial image processing are broadly applicable to environmental investigations and exploring new prospects of ore mineral deposits. Geospatial image processing applications could be one of the most important research areas for mineral exploration, environmental modelling and disaster management. Remote sensing imagery has a high potential to enhance environmental researches and generating high-quality achievements.
