A Fortran Program to Aid in Mineral Identification Using Optical Properties.
Blanchard, Frank N.
Journal of Geological Education, v28 n5 p231-32 Nov 1980
Describes a search and match computer program which retreives from a user-generated mineral file those minerals which are not incompatible with the observed or measured optical properties of an unknown. Careful selection of input lists make it unlikely that the program will fail when reasonably accurate observations are recorded. (Author/JN)
