Webinar: Using the ASD FieldSpec® for Monitoring the Mine Environment
Wednesday 28th November 5pm GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
This webinar focuses on the Malvern Panalytical ASD FieldSpec® spectroradiometer instrument, and how it can be used to aid in determining the environmental impact of mining, and why this is important.
In this webinar, you will learn:
• Overview of sustainable mining and the environmental impacts of mining
• Basic principles of remote sensing and its applications in mine environment monitoring
• Use of the ASD FieldSpec for ground truth and image analysis purposes – implementing remote sensing techniques and how to interpret the acquired data for different purposes
• Case study — Soil pollution mapping for an abandoned coal mine
