This webinar focuses on the application study of lava tubes – secondary minerals and hydrothermal vents – with potential applications to planetary geology, and features ASD’s TerraSpec® Halo Mineral Identifier.
In this webinar, you will learn:
• Use of the TerraSpec® Halo during the ‘PANGAEA’ field geology course for Astronauts held at Lanzarote in the Canary Islands to simulate a planetary mission – landscape descriptions and observations
• Seeing the unseen - ground identification of samples and features of high scientific interest to geologists unseen from satellite-image analysis
• Examples of how NIR technology and the ASD TerraSpec® Halo can be used to help prepare for future exploration operations that enable the best way to obtain scientific answers efficiently during real-life operational settings.
