Comparison of ASTER Bands (bottom) with TM bands (top). Note multiple narrow ASTER bands where TM has one broad band in SWIR and TIR.

Standard USGS reference spectra for Na-Sericite, K-sericite, phengite and Mg/Fe phengite in the SWIR region, showing the progressive shift of the absorption band position to longer wavelengths (left). The same spectra convolved to the ASTER band configuration showing the variation in the shape of the 2209 nm absorption band for the same minerals (right) (Courtesy AD, Inc., website)

Emissivity Spectra of Common Rocks

showing shift in emissivity low from 8.6 um

(ASTER Band 11) for granite to 10.7 um

(ASTER Band 13) for dunite.

This shift forms the basis for using the

thermal bands of ASTER to map lithology

Thermal emissivity

spectra of some

important minerals

convolved with the

ASTER thermal bands,

superimposed on

each other by normal-

izing to a value of 1.0

at 8.0 um (Band 10).

The spectral curves

differ even more than

those for rocks. Thus

alteration zones char-

acterized by these

minerals can be map-

ped using ASTER TIR.

Green

Red

Minerals are widely separated on this plot, and would show up

as green (Dunite) to orange (Albite) if Band 13 were assigned

to Greeen and Band 12 to Red.

The linear distribution shows that

there is a strong correlation between

the emisssivity spectra of different

minerals in bands 13 and 14, a phen-

omenon that is also seen in the SWIR

region, but for vegetation spectra.

This means that in an image, dunite

(olivine) would be dark and quartz

would be bright, but they would have

the same color. This is therefore NOT

a good band combination

Using ratio composites (next slide)

helps to spread the data points out in

color space, giving better discrimination

This is actually an enlarged section of a ternary diagram,

but Excel will not display it as such. It shows that good

separation of the minerals in color space can be achieved

using Thermal band ratios.

This image shows different ages of lava flow - the youngest being the whitest. The overall variation in the image is from red to green, with little blue: this reflects the linearity of the distribution of points on the previous slide. The N-S dark line on the east edge appears to be a fault in alluvium.
