A simple difference between TM-5 and TM-7 (and their homologous ASTER-4 and ASTER-7), named iron oxide pollution index (IOPI), was significantly correlated, 73% for TM and 65% for ASTER. The semiempirical model equations established between IM and IOPI and geochemical analyses for IOP prediction in the soil using TM and ASTER sensors are listed in Table 2. Figure 2.
