August's ASD Webinar - Secondary Minerals and Hydrothermal Vents

August 17, 2017

 

August's ASD webinar speaker is Dr. Francesco Sauro, the Director for the European Space Agency (ESA) PANGAEA program. Through the PANGAEA course, Francesco educates and trains European astronauts with introductory and practical knowledge of Earth and planetary geology to prepare them to become effective partners of planetary scientists and engineers in designing the next exploration missions. The course has the goal of giving astronauts a solid knowledge in the geology of the Solar System, and ASD's TerraSpec® Halo Mineral Identifier has been used in this training and as part of this course.

ASD's October Webinar Focuses on Interpreting Geochemical Conditions on Mars

October 04, 2016

Our 2016 webinar series focuses on one ASD spectroscopy application each month.

If you haven't watched our previous webinars, please visit our webinar recordings page to see what you have missed! Some of our past webinar topics include: NIR, Metamorphic Petrology, and Remote Sensing, On-orbit Sensor Absolute Radiometric Calibration for Earth Remote Sensing, and Adventures in Albedo.

This October, our spectroscopy webinar focuses on the specific application of terrestrial analog studies and geochemical conditions and features ASD's TerraSpec® Halo Mineral Identifier

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Terrestrial analog rover simulations using a VNIR field-portable spectrometer in remote Utah as a useful tool in refining Mars rover operational strategies
  • On being a "human rover" - science team protocols, targets of interest and data collection
  • Using terrestrial analog sites to reconstruct the geologic history of Mars
  • Investigating diverse hydrothermal deposits with Mars analog instrumentation
