Description:

This set of images and video produced with infrared photography lets students "see" heat radiation. Infrared is emitted by anything with a temperature -- even cold objects. The photographic technique is a way to visualize the transfer of energy from hotter to colder regions and build accurate concepts about radiant energy. Images depict a variety of objects: hot coffee, Old Faithful geyser, ice cubes, cold-blooded and warm-blooded animals, and hot springs.
