Mineral mapping for geothermal exploration using remote sensing
Project Goals and Description:
Due to energy transition, there is an increased demand for green energy resources. Geothermal resource exploration involves mapping indicator minerals. This project aims at development of mineral mapping methods for geothermal sites using satellite image analysis. It includes, analysis of rock samples collected from the geothermal site in the laboratory, collecting characteristics spectra of minerals and using this information to process satellite images.
The team will work using a common data directory and will meet weekly. Data collection and analyses will be conducted in collaboration with faculty from geology and geological engineering and mining engineering. Student will work with faculty and graduate students
Grand Challenge: Engineer the tools of scientific discovery.
