Abstract

Surface and laboratory measured reflectance data of various rock types were analysed for the possible correlation with Landsat MSS response using statistical methods. It is found that band 6(0.7–0.8 μm) in field and satellite and band 7(0.8–1.1) in field and laboratory data have maximum correlation coefficient.
