Abstract

Infrared thermal imagers convert the radiation received by a detector into a false colour visual image which represents the temperature profile of a scene or object. The selection of an infrared sensor for ocean based imaging is complicated, and depends on the intended use and target characteristics. This paper provides a theoretical understanding of the physics associated with the energy collected by the sensor and the resulting infrared images. Further, explanation of the factors affecting the resulting image with respect to the camera properties is provided. Finally, a variety of examples of airborne thermal images are presented, with detailed explanations of the imaged scenes based on theory and sensor characteristics provided in the previous sections.
