Transmittance and reflectance spectra of calcite and quartz are presented for the wavelength range from 4000 to 400 cm-1 (2.5-25 mu m). It is the purpose of this paper to point out that these weak bands are potentially useful for compositional remote sensing of particulate planetary surfaces; this will require completion of supporting laboratory studies to document the occurrence of weak bands. -from Authors
