Editorial for the Special Issue : Multispectral and Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Data for Mineral Exploration and Environmental Monitoring of Mined Areas

In recent decades, multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing data provide un- precedented opportunities for the initial stages of mineral exploration and environmental hazard monitoring. Increasing demands for minerals because of industrialization and ex- ponential growth in population emphasize the necessity for replenishing exploited reserves by exploration of new potential zones of mineral deposits. Identiļ¬cation of host-rock lithologies, geologic structural features, and hydrothermal alteration mineral zones are the most conspicuous applications of multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing satel- lite data for mineral exploration in the metallogenic provinces and frontier areas around the world.
