5/1/2003 - Book chaptersA prototype portable hyperspectral imager was field tested at an open-pit mine as part of an investigation of remote sensing technologies for use in detecting and monitoring conditions in surface mines that could lead to catastrophic slope failure.
3/1/1999 - Conference papersHigh-resolution hyperspectral imagery operating in the visible to shortwave infrared can help identify and map argillic zones in host rocks; these zones add a significant risk in assessing and modeling catastrophic slope movement in open-pit mines.
Promoting Early Exposure Monitoring for Respirable Crystalline Silica: Taking the Laboratory to the Mine Site3/1/2016 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article discussing a NIOSH-proposed solution for on-site quantification of respirable crystalline silica in dust samples.
Crystalline Silica Analysis: A Comparison of Calibration Materials and Recent Coal Mine Dust Size Distributions1/1/2006 - Peer reviewed journal articlesSince 1982, standard calibration materials recommended for respirable crystalline silica analysis by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) P7 Infrared Method and the NIOSH X-ray Diffraction (XRD) Analytical Method 7500 have undergone minor ch...
