Reflectivity-and commonly, the word reflectance-refers to the amount of incident radiant energy is mirrored or reversed from a material surface.
A bolometer is a sensor physically much like a common photographic CMOS or CCD sensor, except that it employs a different transduction process and is sensitive to a very broad range of electromagnetic energy
The effects of atmospheric media on thermography will be dependent upon its temperature, density, movement, particulates, etc.
Convection refers to the movement of gas or fluid due to differences in density (gravity, natural convection) or physical force (mechanical convection).
A widely accepted conventional wisdom is that temperature is the most commonly measured parameter within industry.
Electromagnetic energy will behave in one or more of three ways when it is incident upon an object or encounters a medium boundary; it will either be absorbed, be reflected, or be transmitted.
The baseline and responsive documentation-and immediate dissemination-of technical (aerial, hyperspectral, etc.) imagery of flooding is tremendously practical.
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
The images below represent some interesting results from both vertical (orthogonal) and oblique aerial thermography throughout 2018.
The EPA has established a Heat Island Reduction Program (HIRP) and expressed that it is useful for communities in the preparation of projects, programs, and policies. While this language is nurturing vice systemizing, the statement is contained in a section titled “What EPA is Doing to Reduce Heat Islands.” An intent is obvious, and it must be considered that EPA is not a hobbyist organization.
Mapping metrologic data assets is frequently necessary, particularly with hyperspectral (other than visible band) imagery and spatial data sets such as LiDAR; the images simply aren’t accessible or recognizable by the general population using ordinary software.
The above aerial photograph is a panorama of the fire’s footprint showing its relationship to downtown Boise, Boise State University, Boise’s Warm Springs Golf Course, the Boise River and Barber Valley, and infrastructure such as the East Parkcenter Bridge.
