SEBASS Data for Meteor Crater

This is an example raw image measured of Meteor Crater in 1999 by the SEBASS thermal infrared hyperspectral imager. SEBASS measures spectral imagery that covers 3-5 microns 7-13 microns in 256 bands. The spectra are used to map the minerals present. The results can be applied to studies of Meteor Crater and also by extension to remote sensing lunar and planetary studies. SEBASS is the highest sensitivity thermal-infrared spectrometer available for research. These data and a preliminary analysis of them were presented by Keim, Kirkland, Hackwell, and Herr (2001) Terrestrial Airborne Hyperspectral Remote Sensing (SEBASS):  Applications to Remote Sensing of Mars, Lunar and Planetary Science XXXII, Abstract #2162.
