Geology and Geophysics of Geothermal Systems, Gregory Nash, 2005. Objectives for FY 2004 were to map mineralogy in Dixie Meadows, NV and thermal anomalies in Railroad Valley, NV. The first objective relates to the project goal of testing hyperspectral imagery for applications in soil-mineralogy mapping to detect hidden faults and buried geothermal phenomena. The second objective relates to testing satellite thermal infrared (TIR) data for locating thermal anomalies that may be related to blind systems. A third objective was testing ASTER multispectral data for small-scale mapping of the geology of the northern Silver Peak Range, Nevada near the Fish Lake Valley geothermal field.
