ABSTRACT Structural analysis of geological phenomena may be enhanced by real or simu­ lated illumination conditions of satellite data. The Heat Capacity Mapping Mission (HCMM) was an experimental satellite program that observed thermal conditions on the Earth’s surface either during the day or at night. The mission was the first of a series of NASA Applications Explorer Missions (AEM-A).

Offield, K. Watson and S. Miller. The author has identified the following significant results. After digitization, a noise rejection filter was applied to data obtained by USGS aircraft.

An albedo image was formed by combining three bands of visible data. Along with the day and nighttime thermal data, the albedo image was used to construct a relative thermal-inertia image. This image, registered to a topographic base, shows. In the Powder River Basin, Wyo., narrow geologic units having thermal inertias which contrast with their surroundings can be discriminated in optimal images.

A few subtle thermal inertia anomalies coincide with areas of helium leakage believed to be associated with deep oil and gas concentrations. The most important results involved delineation of tectonic framework elements some of which were Cited by: 5.

The author has identified the following significant results. Approximately miles of low altitude scanner data of good quality was acquired over the Powder River Basin between Oct. Radiometric and meteorological data from three ground stations were also acquired in.

The author has identified the following significant results. A more efficient algorithm for calculating surface temperature was developed. This algorithm was determined to be essentially exact, and relative accuracies in determining thermal inertia of the finite difference and the linear Fourier series algorithms were approximately 5% for both.

Abstract. The thermal response of a substance to a time‐varying surface power input is determined by its thermal inertia. Remote sensing (e.g., from satellites) can be utilized to measure this property, which is related to surface composition or to near‐surface soil moisture.

An algorithm is developed which relates thermal inertia to remote measurements of surface temperature and by: Application to geosynchronous satellite data illustrates the contrast between irrigated and desert areas in the region north of the Gulf of California.

The effect of local weather conditions (latent and sensible heat transfer to the atmosphere) must be estimated before Cited by: Thermal inertia mapping over the Brahmaputra basin, India using NOAA-AVHRR data and its possible geological applications.

Compare what you see against satellite imagery. Powerful charting tools turn complex oil and gas data into visualizations like production charts, cross sections, 3D well bore maps, and histograms. The geological map based on interpretation of LANOSAT data of Andhra, Orissa and Singhbhum (NRS^and Rakshit ) clearly indicate the utility of LANDSAT data in the revision of geological maps.
