Determining mineralogical variations of aeolian deposits using thermal infrared emissivity and linear deconvolution methods

We apply linear deconvolution methods to derive mineral and glass proportions for eight field sample training sites at seven dune fields: (1) Algodones, California; (2) Big Dune, Nevada; (3) Bruneau, Idaho; (4) Great Kobuk Sand Dunes, Alaska; (5) Great Sa

Linear Deconvolution Mineral Maps of Compositionally Variable Dune Fields in the Western United States and Alaska

Results of a computational geospatial analysis (linear deconvolution) of thermal infrared emissivity imagery to determine the variation of mineralogical composition of aeolian deposits. Minerals include calcite, potassium feldspar, plagioclase, and quartz. Data are provided in GeoTiff format.
