Sub-Pixel Detection of Obsidian and Pottery by NASA Satellite and Aircraft Data (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Paul Buck. Donald Sabol.

We determine the detection limits of sub-pixel artifacts (site midden, obsidian artifacts, and pottery) using airborne and spaceborne image data. Research results are presented from the Glass Mountain Site in northern CA and the Boquillas site in southern Arizona. Multiple visits were made at different seasons over three years. Visible, SWIR, and TIR spectral characteristics of targets and background were measured in the field. A spectral library has been constructed from ~200 target and...
