TECHNICAL NOTE: Mining industry benefits and concerns on environmental remote sensing
Mining Engineering, 2000, Vol. 52, No. 6, pp. 7-8
ABSTRACT:The application of remote sensing in the mining industry is not new. Light detecting and ranging (LIDAR) units were used in the late 1970s to monitor stack opacity at smelters. Since the mid-1990s, a new breed of sensitive analytical instruments was developed with increased spatial, spectral and temporal resolution.
