Program Physics of Remote Sensing Directors Mickaël Germain. Kalifa Goïta. Field of research Lithological mapping by modelling radiative transfer in a mining context. An open pit being mined is used as a planetary regolith analogue for spectral studies. Observations made directly at the site confirm that the pit soil falls within the definition of regolith. The Hapke radiative transfer model, usually used in planetolo...
