Geosense will showcase and demonstrate their PSR-3500 field spectroradiometer at the upcoming Minex Russia 2013 in October.
When used in the field, spectrometers and spectroradiometers allow for the collection of data that can be applied to geological surveys, alteration zones mapping, mineral identification, and geomorphology applications. The Spectral Evolution PSR-3500 is the ideal field instrument for geological remote sensing applications.
Geosense is a leading remote sensing consultant with 25 years of experience in mineral exploration and geological mapping worldwide. Geosense offers a wide range of services for regional exploration, project scale mapping, drillcore logging, and environmental impact analysis.
The PSR-3500 spectroradiometer delivers various capabilities necessary to study the effects of natural events, as well as changes in mineralogical composition. The PSR-3500 offers fast, full-spectrum UV/VIS/NIR measurements with just one scan, superior reliability for field use with 100% diode array optics and no moving parts to break down, field switchable optics for different target sizes and measurement modes, standalone operation, holding up to 1000 scans internally without a computer, Bluetooth interface for wireless communication, lightweight, compact Li-ion rechargeable batteries, and rugged construction that weighs less than 8 lbs. for easy handling.
An optional Getac PS336 microcomputer tags scans with GPS coordinates, photos, and voice notes, has a sunlight readable VGA screen, and stores an almost unlimited number of scans.
All spectrometers are equipped with the exclusive DARWin SP Data Analysis software package with various analysis features. In addition to automatically saving data as a compatible ASCII file to SpecMIN, GRAMS or TSG software, the software collects reference or target data with a single click, displays reflectance/transmittance data (percentage) or absorbance (logarithmic) versus wavelength, and makes available single and multiple spectral plots. Current scans can be compared against libraries, including the USGS libraries.
Geosense can provide the PSR-3500 as a powerful tool to map various types of minerals and mineral properties, including phylosilicates, clays, chlorites, serpentine; hydroxilated silicates (e.g. amphibole, epidote); silica varieties; sulphates and carbonates; compositional variations; and crystallinity variations.
