Conference Paper: Tir (Aster) Geothermal Anomalies

The focus of this research is the detection of shallow thermal anomalies for geothermal exploration and field management. The objective of this paper is to outline the steps involved in applying thermal infrared imagery (TIR) for this task. This process is part of an ongoing project at the Energy & Geoscience Institute (EGI), where we are developing a methodology to use daytime and nighttime thermal infrared imagery produced by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) to map shallow thermal anomalies. Kinetic temperature images derived from ASTER TIR data can be used to detect potential anomalies, however, the interpretation process is complex. A key problem is thermal inertia. As different types of ground cover have a wide range of thermal inertia, true geothermal related thermal anomalies are difficult to identify.
