Abstract

Large mineral deposits represent, in fact, geological anomalies and occur in places characterized by a number of specific geological signatures. An important task of the analysis of space images is to recognize such anomalies. The location of the latter is mostly controlled by longlived throughgoing fault systems of a deep-seated nature. As a result of the fast progress in the space research, lineaments of this type have been studied by many scientists. Along with visual interpretation, statistical treatment of these lineaments is being developed, using special maps of regional fracturing. Further development is seen in automatization of fracture detection and in evaluation of the ways of the peculiarities of their manifestation, performed in conjunction with the analysis of geological anomalies, geophysical data, and morphostructural analysis of the topography.
