Abstract

Geothermal exploration requires thermal images for obtaining the temperature on ground surface for characterizing surface geology and modeling the temperature at the depth. The purpose of this study is to integrate a thermal sensor with a wind-resistant UAV for detecting geothermal anomalies suitable for conducting exploration in a mountainous terrain. The specifications of the UAS-TIR, the experiment at XiaoYoukeng, and the results are presented. It is proved that such a system can be effectively applied in assisting quantitative assessment of geothermal reserves when compared with airborne thermal systems.
