Description:

This 17-page PDF document from Michael Ramsey at the University of Pittsburg explores some of the practical applications of Thermal Infrared (TIR) data in both the laboratory and remotely acquired environments. It focuses on the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) in particular, but also mentions other systems and the caveats of moving from laboratory-based hypotheses to real world data. The document discusses the principles of TIR, highlighting the common analytical technique of spectral deconvolution as it is applied to two very different geologic processes. Case studies at the Kelso Dunes, CA and Bezimmiany Volcano, Russia, are used as primary examples that highlight TIR applications to eolian and volcanological processes. Graphs and photos help illustrate the concepts.
