infrared

(Learning Modules / Geography / Weather forecasting) Part of the electromagnetic spectrum with wavelengths slightly longer than visible light. Infrared radiation correlates closely to the temperature of a body and so infrared images from space can give quite detailed information on cloud temperatures and therefore height - since higher parts of the atmosphere are colder....

Infrared

The band of electromagnetic wavelengths between 700nm to about 1mm. The transmission of light in glass optical fibres is most efficient in the infrared, at wavelengths from 1100nm to 850nm.

infrared

Light that is so red humans cannot see it. A band of the electromagnetic spectrum between the visible and the microwave. Photons of infrared light are less energetic than photons of visible light.

Infrared

Infrared radiation is invisible. It is a form of electromagnetic radiation, with a wavelength just longer than that of visible red light. Infrared light is use in telecommunications (via optical fibres). It is used in medicine to diagnose illness (thermograms) and accelerate healing in physiotherapy. Loosely speaking, infrared radiation can be tho...

infrared

(in-frә-red´) denoting electromagnetic radiation of wavelength greater than that of the red end of the spectrum, being 0.75–1000 μm. Infrared rays are sometimes subdivided into long-wave or far infrared (about 3.0–1000 μm) and short-wave or near infrared (about 0.75–3.0 μm). They a...
