Factors affecting the accuracy of thermal imaging cameras in volcanology

  title={Factors affecting the accuracy of thermal imaging cameras in volcanology},
  author={Markus Ball and Harry Pinkerton},
[1] Volcano observatories and researchers are recognizing the potential usefulness of thermal imaging cameras both before and during volcanic eruptions. Obvious applications include measurements of the surface temperatures of active lava domes and lava flows to determine the location of the most active parts of these potentially hazardous features. If appropriate precautions are taken, the new generation of thermal imaging cameras can be used to extract quantitative as well as qualitative… CONTINUE READING
