Difference Between Kinetic Temperature and Radiant Temperature

Kinetic Temperature: Kinetic temperature (Tkin) of an object is measured through direct contact of the object’s surface. Normally when we are referring temperature of an object, we are referring to kinetic temperature. It is called true temperature of the object. It can be measured using a thermometer. Radiant Temperature: Radiant temperature (T rad) of an …

Thermal InfraRed Remote Sensing – Basics and Types

History of Thermal InfraRed Remote Sensing: Astronomer Federick W Herschel has discovered thermal portion of electromagnetic spectrum in the year 1800. Detector elements for thermal energy were discovered during the world war – II. This lead to the development of thermal infra red remote sensing. Initially, lead salt photo detectors are used in thermal remote …
