  • In this study we examined the capability of a laboratory infrared video camera for use in remote sensing of the environment. The instrument used, INFRAMETRICS 760, was mounted onboard a Bell 206 helicopter. Under the flight conditions examined, the radiometer proved itself to be very stable and produced high-quality thermal images in a real-time mode. We studied two different environmental aspects, as follows: (1) Urban heat island of the most dense city in Israel, Tel-Aviv- and (2) lithological distribution of a well-known mineralogical site in Israel, Makhtesh Ramon. The radiometer used in both studies was able to produce a temperaturemore » presentation, rather than a gray scale from an altitude of 7,000 and 10,000 feet and at 70 knots air speed. The instrument produced a high-quality set of data in terms of signal-to-noise, stability, temperature accuracy and spatial resolution. In the Tel-Aviv case, the results showed that the urban heat island of the city can be depicted in a very high spatial and thermal resolutions domain and that a significant correlation exists between ground objects and the surrounding air temperature values. Based on the flight results, we could generated an isotherm map of the city that, for the first time, located the urban heat island of the city both in meso- and microscales. In the case of Makhtesh Ramon, we found that under field conditions, the radiometer, coupled with a VIS-CCD camera can provide significant ATI parameters of typical rocks that characterize tile study area. Although more study is planned and suggested based on the current data, it was concluded that the airborne thermal video radiometry, is a promising, inexpensive tool for monitoring the environment on a real-time basis. 10 refs., 5 figs., 1 tab.« less
  • With the increasing application of geophysical methods to hydrogeological problems, approaches for obtaining quantitative estimates of hydrogeological parameters using geophysical data are in great demand. A common approach to hydrogeological parameter estimation using geophysical and hydrogeological data is to first invert the geophysical data using a geophysical inversion procedure, and subsequently use the resulting estimates together with available hydrogeological information to estimate a hydrogeological parameter field. This approach does not allow us to constrain the geophysical inversion by hydrogeological data and prior information, and thus decreases our ability to make valid estimates of the hydrogeological parameter field. Furthermore, it ismore » difficult to quantify the uncertainty in the corresponding estimates and to validate the assumptions made. They are developing alternative approaches that allow for the joint inversion of all available hydrological and geophysical data. In this presentation, they consider three studies and draw various conclusions, such as on the potential benefits of estimating the petrophysical relationships within the inversion framework and of constraining the geophysical estimates on geophysical, as well as hydrogeological data.« less
  • A comparison of different manufacturers' microchannel plate image intensifier tubes (MCPTs) in coupled bideo systems is presented. Comparative performances in the areas of optical gating speed, resolution, gain, and phosphor efficiency are discussed. Relative sensitivities for various combinations of coupled MCPT/TV imager systems including P-20 and P-20R phosphors cascaded to FPS (focus projection and scan) electrostatic vidicons with silicon or Sb/sub 2/S/sub 3/ targets and CID (charge injection devices) solid state imagers are included.
  • In the course of recent calculations of population dose using Rocky Flats Plant (RFP) meteorological statistics for the last several years, we have discovered interesting associations. It is the intent of this paper to communicate these to other workers in the field. In order to determine the potential dose to a person at the RFP site boundary from a source of radioactive effluent, it is necessary to account for atmospheric dispersion of the effluent. Often, a bounding calculation, using a ``worst case`` meteorological condition, is performed. We were interested, however, in using a more typical, or likely, condition. To domore » so, we used data derived from measurements at the RFP meteorological tower. These measurements include 15 minute samples of wind speed, wind direction, and temperatures at 10 meters, 25 meters and 60 meters above ground. We took these data for the complete period for which they are quality assured, March, 1989 through January, 1993, and used them in a simple computer program to develop dose statistics by repeated application of Gaussian plume dispersion.« less
