Spectroscopic alteration map; minerals; Cuprite, Nevada

Spectroscopic alteration map generalized from the distribution of minerals; Cuprite, Nevada

Detailed Description

Mineral maps based on Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) data were used to study late Miocene advanced argillic alteration at Cuprite, Nevada.  Distributions of Fe-bearing minerals, clays, micas, sulfates, and carbonates were mapped using the Tetracorder spectral-shape matching system.
