We report Independent Component Analysis (ICA) technique applied to THz spectroscopy and imaging to achieve a blind source separation. A reference water vapor absorption spectrum was extracted via ICA, then ICA was utilized on a THz spectroscopic image in order to clean the absorption of water molecules from each pixel. For this purpose, silica gel was chosen as the material of interest for its strong water absorption. The resulting image clearly showed that ICA effectively removed the water content in the detected signal allowing us to image the silica gel beads distinctively even though it was totally embedded in water before ICA was applied.
