Infrared World


Veterinary Medicine

To prevent animals from becoming stressed during medical exams (especially large animals, like horses and elephants), veterinarians use infrared cameras to examine animals without touching them.


Infrared Geology

Thermal infrared data obtained from airplanes and satellites is used to study geysers, as well as to predict volcanic eruptions by mapping ground temperatures, the composition of lava flows, and the sulfur dioxide in volcanic plumes.
