NASA - Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS)

QWIPs are a new, lower-cost alternative to conventional infrared technology and were developed at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The QWIPs TIRS uses are sensitive to two thermal infrared wavelength bands, helping it separate the temperature of the Earth's surface from that of the atmosphere.

Satellite Thermal Infrared 1 Analysis And Its Band Combination

This band aims to provide an accurate land temperature that is given as top of atmosphere surface (calibrated at-sensor) radiance convertible to equivalent brightness temperature. Its use on satellite sensors can significantly contribute to the analysis and measurement of the energy balance characteristics as a complete and essential feature of landscape dynamics and functioning. The band …

Thermal imaging with satellites. A short introduction to ...

· Thermal imaging sensors m easure the amount of infrared radiation from an object. All objects above -273°C (absolute zero temperature) emit infrared radiation by themselves, and additionally reflect and transmit some radiation that originates from other objects. The warmer an object is, the more thermal radiation it emits. Thus, objects can be distinguished via thermal imaging even …

Thermal Infrared Remote Sensing - IIIT

• Thermal infrared radiation refers to electromagnetic waves with a wavelength of between 3 and 20 micrometers. • Most remote sensing applications make use of the 3 to 5 and 8 to 14 micrometer range (due to absorption bands). • The main difference between thermal infrared and near infrared is that thermal infrared is emitted energy, whereas the near infrared is reflected energy, similar ...

For this reason, most satellite sensors for measurement of the earth surface temperature have a band detecting infrared radiation around 10 µm. Besides the measurement of regular surface temperature, infrared sensors can be used for detection of forest fires or other warm/hot objects. For typical fire temperatures from about 500 K (smouldering fire) to over 1000 K (flaming fire), the radiance ...
