Abstract

We experimentally evaluated the efficacy of var- ious autonomous supervised classification techniques for de- tecting transient geophysical phenomena. We demonstrated methods of detecting volcanic plumes on the planetary satellites Io and Enceladus using spacecraft images from the Voyager, Galileo, New Horizons, and Cassini missions. We successfully detected 73-95% of known plumes in images from all four mission datasets. We increased the detection rate by using a training subset. Additionally, we showed that the same tech- niques are applicable to differentiating geologic features, such as plumes and mountains, which exhibit similar appearances in images.
