Thermal Infrared

I flew three balloons at GPSL 2017. One of them carried a thermal imager along with other cameras. The signal wire for the cameras accidentally slipped off it's port before launch (so this cable will be taped on next time). This leaves me using Google Maps for identify ground features in the thermal images. The first match I found is over Gypsum Creek. Here's the matching images.

The creek and the trees lining the creek are cooler than the neighboring farm fields. The yellow fields to the north have been plowed, so they get warmer than the crops in the other farm fields.
