An Overview of Infrared Remote Sensing of Volcanic Activity

Matthew Blackett
2017 Journal of Imaging  
This review will describe the theoretical basis of the discipline and then discuss the sensors available and the history of their use.  ...  The characteristics of the heat emitted relate directly to the geological processes underway and can be observed from space, using the thermal sensors present on many Earth-orbiting satellites.  ...  , to develop an even more sensitive hot-spot detection algorithm.  ...

Shortwave IR Adaption of the Mid-Infrared Radiance Method of Fire Radiative Power (FRP) Retrieval for Assessing Industrial Gas Flaring Output

Daniel Fisher, Martin J. Wooster
2018 Remote Sensing  
The radiative power (MW) output of a gas flare is a useful metric from which the rate of methane combustion and carbon dioxide emission can be inferred for inventorying purposes and regular global surveys  ...  Over an assumed flaring temperature range of 1600-2200 K we find a maximum FRP error of ±13.6% when using SWIR observations at 1.6 µm and ±6.3% when using observations made at 2.2 µm.  ...  The NightFire algorithm, like most other EO-based combustion event characterization approaches, employs two key stages: Firstly, 'hot spot' detection, where pixels containing sub-pixel high temperature  ...

Methodology review and selection (CURE Deliverable D1.3)

Wieke Heldens, Elisabeth Brzoska, Alessandra Gandini, Laura Gutierrez, Efren Feliu Torres, Maider Arana, Mattia Marconcini, Annekatrin Metz-Marconcini, Zina Mitraka
2020 Zenodo  
Here, major focus is given to previous FP7 and H2020 projects, especially those addressing urban resilience topics.  ...  This document provides a review of current methodologies, which can be of use in the implementation of the proof-of-concept / prototype (as well as for benchmarking activities) for each intended CURE application  ...  This intensity measure uses the local pixel LST normalized by the minimum and maximum LST within the AOI and is therefore most suitable to identify hot spots.  ...
