CHIPS: Canadian Hyperspectral Integrated Planetary Spectroscopy


The CHIPS database contains spectroscopic experiments of several types, such as reflectance, Raman and transmission, with spectral ranges covering from the UV to the near-infrared. The studied samples are either natural geological samples, field sites, meteorites or synthetic components.
