  • Simultaneous use of the 3.8-pm and 11-pm thermal infrared channels on board the 3rd-generation NOAA-6 environmental satellite provides the capability to detect subresolution scale high-temperature sources, and to estimate both the temperature and size of such sources. Examples resented include gas flares from oil fields in the Middle East and steel mills in the midwestern United States. channels is 1.1 km at the satellite subpoint, and the minimum noise-equivalent differential temperature (NEAT… CONTINUE READING
