Spectral reflecting of certain minerals and similar inorganic materials
Dunkle, R. V.; Gier, J. T.
Technical ReportSummary: Of particular interest to investigators in the problems of radiative exchange and over-all heat balances of the natural environment is the emission characteristics of the different constituents of what is loosely termed the earth. Thus, the spectral reflectivity characteristics of minerals and associated materials is of prime importance. The following report is the result of a preliminary investigation of the spectral reflectivity of certain minerals and other similar materials.
