Mapping Lithological Units of an Evaporite Formation using ASTER data: a Case Study from Zagros Fold Belt, SW Iran

Khadijeh Validabadi Bozcheloei; Majid Hashemi Tangestani

Volume 15, Issue 2 , April 2024, , Pages 637-648


  Evaporites are sediments that chemically precipitate due to the evaporation of an aqueous solution. Most evaporite formations, in addition to evaporite minerals, include detrital rocks such as mudstone, marl, and siltstone. Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Directed Principal Component Analysis (DPCA), ...  Read More

Classification of ASTER Data by Neural Network to Mapping Alterations Related to Copper and Iron Mineralization in Birjand

Jabar Habashi; Majid Mohammady Oskouei; Hadi Jamshid Moghadam

Volume 15, Issue 2 , April 2024, , Pages 649-665


  The studied area located in eastern Iran shows a high potential for various mineralizations, especially copper due to its tectonic activity. Remote sensing data can effectively distinguish these areas because of the sparse vegetation. Therefore, in this study, the ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission ...  Read More

Satellite Image Processing: Application for Alteration Separation based on U-Statistic Method in Zafarghand Porphyry System (Iran)

Seyyed Saeed Ghannadpour; Morteza Hasiri; Hadi Jalili; Somayeh Talebiesfandarani

Volume 15, Issue 2 , April 2024, , Pages 667-681


  The Zafarghand area (as a porphyry Cu deposit) is located in the northeast of Isfahan and southeast of Ardestan, which is a part of the Iran-Central structural zone, and more precisely, it is located in the Urmia-Dokhtar volcanic belt. In the porphyry Cu deposits exploration, identifying and determining ...  Read More

Anomaly delineation of porphyry copper deposits of Hanza Region through geochemical data analyses and multispectral remote sensing

A. Habibnia; Gh. R. Rahimipour; H. Ranjbar

Volume 10, Issue 3 , July 2019, , Pages 747-762


  Hanza region is located in the southern part of Urumieh–Dokhtar Metallogenic belt in southeastern Iran. This region includes six known porphyry copper deposits and it is considered as an ore- bearing region from geochemical point of view. The aim of this research is to examine effective processing ...  Read More

Evaluating the effect of using different reference spectra on SAM classification results: an implication for hydrothermal alteration mapping

M. Honarmand; H. Ranjbar; H. Shahriari; F. Naseri

Volume 9, Issue 4 , October 2018, , Pages 981-997


  This research was performed with the objective of evaluating the accuracy of spectral angle mapper (SAM) classification using different reference spectra. The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) digital images were applied in the SAM classification in order to map the ...  Read More
