Volcanic Eruption Observations From An Elevated Point Of Stromboli Using Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging
 
By TELOPS

Scientific research on different indicators of imminent volcanic eruptions is carried out on an ongoing basis, especially with volcanoes that are located close to urban areas. Remote sensing technologies are the preferred method of investigation due to the hazardous and sometimes unpredictable behavior of these volcanoes. This application note highlights the benefits of using standoff infrared hyperspectral imaging for characterizing volcanic process.
