Volcano Detected From Space Using Thermal Imaging

A volcano was discovered by NASA’s mission satellite on the Paluweh Island. A thermal Infrared sensor formed an image of the heat radiating from the 5-mile-wide volcano. The TIRS discovered a hot spot at the top of the volcano where lava is being discharged.

The volcano’s image gives evidence of the TIRS’s capacity to capture clearly the margins between the hot volcanic activity and the cooler volcanic ash. It is obvious that thermal imaging is also assisting in discovering potential disasters.

Take a look at how the Paris Air show 2013 looks through Flir thermal imaging camera.
