Seeing Worlds in the Thermal Infrared

Michael Ramsey Michael Ramsey, Professor of Geology & Planetary Science

The thermal infrared wavelengths are commonly used to detect heat but they can also provide important chemical and geological information on everything from human health to erupting volcanoes to discoveries on the surface of Mars. We will explore many different aspects and examples of thermal infrared imaging including live demonstrations in order to "see" these other worlds.
