combined use of UV and TIR cameras
Frequent (~15 min) imaging of reflected solar ultra-violet (UV) and thermal ifrared (TIR) radiation of the whole Earth from cislunar vantage point offer unique possibilities to answer NASA’s Earth System Science (ESS) questions and further advance volcanic ash (VA) and sulfur dioxide (VSO2) aviation safety applications. We propose complementary ultraviolet (UV) and ther-mal Infrared (TIR) filter cameras for a dual-purpose whole Earth imaging with complementary natural haz-ards applications and Earth System science goals.
