Treasure Hunt Find and scan all 11 QR codes Choose one to watch / read in detail Post the key points as a reaction to (need to sign in first) Dr Karen Joyce School of Environmental and Life Sciences Bldg Purple EMR and Remote Sensing EMR Principles and Properties Understanding how EMR interacts with the feature you are interested in is the basis for interpreting remotely sensed data This also enables you to select appropriate remotely sensed data Leads to visual & quantitative interpretation of images and other data sets to IDENTIFY features and MEASURE biophysical properties of interest 3 4 EMR Wave and Particle Theories Regions of the EMR Spectrum Any material with molecular motion (T > 0K) emits radiant energy Can earth surface features be differentiated based on the amount of EMR they emit? EMR radiates according to wave theory As c remains constant, if v c = νλ increases, λ must decrease (and vice versa) where c = speed of light (3x10 8 m.sec -1 ) λ = of EMR (µm = micro-m = 10-6 m) ν = frequency of EMR (sec -1 ) Short Wavelength / High Frequency Wavelengths and the spectrum - EMR units Frequencies (instead of s as units?) Energy levels Long Wavelength / Low Frequency 5 6 1

2 Particle Theory EMR is composed of discrete units (photons or quanta) Determines energy level of EMR Planck' s equation for the EMR emitted at a specific and frequency: Energy, Wavelength & Frequency Wavelength (inverse) and frequency (direct) relationships with EMR energy levels Q = h ν where Q = radiant energy of quanta (joules) h = Planck's constant (6.626x10-34 joules.sec) ν = frequency of EMR (sec -1 ) Remember: c = νλ or: v = c/λ Q = h c/λ As h & c are constants, energy is inversely proportional to (Diagram source: The Light Measurement handbook Energy & Wavelength EMR Units Why is the Thermal Infrared image more blurry than the Mid Infrared image? Airborne and satellite imaging systems record the amount of EMR being reflected or emitted from a target Amount of EMR reaching a sensor is in one of the following units: TERM UNIT DESCRIPTION radiant energy (Q) joule energy per quanta radiant flux (φ) watt (joule.second -1 ) energy per unit time Radiant flux density irradiance (E,Q) watt.m -2 incident flux per unit area over all angles radiance (L) watt.m -2.sr -1 incident flux per unit area at specific solid/3-d angle spectral radiance (L) watt.m -2.sr -1.µm -1 incident flux per unit area at specific angle over a set MIR TIR 9 range of s Source: S. Phinn 10 EMR Units Stefan Boltzman Law Provides a basis for distinguishing objects based on measurements of emitted energy Temperature controls the amount of emitted energy from an object The amount of energy a blackbody radiates (M) is a function of its temperature (T) M = σ T 4 Emitted energy increases very quickly with increases in Temp where, M = total spectral radiant exitance (watts.m -2 ) Note: sr = Steradian, refers to a unit solid angle (a 3D angle) that relates to a camera or sensor s field of view (Diagram source: The Light Measurement handbook σ = Stefan-Boltzman constant (5.6697x10-8 watts.m -2 K -4 ) T = temperature in K Note the threshold for reflection/emission is around 3µm, i.e. most EMR beyond this emitted, while EMR at < 3µm is reflected sunlight

3 Radiant energy Wien s Displacement Law Area under curves = total radiant energy High temperature = large total amount of emitted radiation As temp increases, peak emission shifts to shorter s Peak determined by Wien s displacement law Use to select optimum of EMR to record for monitoring specific targets Wavelength of maximum emitted energy depends on an object's temperature The (λ) of maximum spectral radiant exitance (M) is inversely related to its temperature (T): λ max = A / T Higher temp = Shorter where, λ max = of maximum spectral radiant exitance (µm) A = 2898 µm.k T = temperature in K 13 Sources: Process Associates of America & Handbook of Chemistry & Physics, Recap As s decrease, frequency increases (wave theory), energy increases Emitted energy increases very quickly with increases in temperature (Stefan Boltzman Law) As temperatures increase, of maximum emitted energy decreases (Wien s Displacement Law) Conservation of Energy Need to understand this to interpret image data sets and measure processes responsible for absorption, reflection and transmission of EMR Controls on elements of image formation For any of EMR and incident amount of EMR (E) interacting with a surface: E = Reflected + Transmitted + Absorbed EMR Interactions Reflectance Reflection Re-direction of light striking non-transparent surface Strength of reflection type of surface Diffuse smooth Specular (Lambertian) rough Absorption Energy of the photon is taken up by the feature and converted to other forms of energy (e.g. used for photosynthesis) Transmission Light passing through material without much attenuation Water most affected by transmission of light Plant leaves Diffuse reflectance - uniform in all directions (Contains information on the characteristics of a target, by the nature of its interactions with EMR) Specular reflectance - mirror like / directional with no information on the characteristics of a target Accounts for amount of incoming radiation

4 Reflectance and Geometry EMR Interactions in the Atmosphere Reflected EMR depends on angles of incident light and camera position How does the atmosphere alter the "quality" of satellite/ airborne images and aerial photographs? Identification of EMR interactions affecting an airborne or satellite image The effect of the atmosphere on the transmission of EMR to and from the earth's surface by scattering and absorption processes is a function of Path length EMR Atmospheric conditions Scattering Rayleigh particles smaller in diameter than the EMR inversely proportional to 4th power of air molecules scatters short s (blue sky) Mie Particles equal in size to Inversely proportional to nd power of Water vapour, dust (haze), causes sky to take on reddish appearance Non-selective Particles have greater dimensions than Scatters all s Water Droplets and ice (fog and clouds), causes white appearance All scattering produces "additive path radiance" Absorption Reduces the amount of incident solar radiation and reflected or emitted radiation traveling to the sensor Loss of EMR energy to atmospheric constituents Major absorbers: H 2 O, CO 2, O 3, O 2, N 2, O, N Minor absorbers: NO, N 2 O, CO, CH 4 Source: Regions of the EMR spectrum where there is limited absorption of EMR by atmospheric constituents.
