Jen Kern Q1 The red color gun held the NIR band, from .85 to .88 micrometers. The green gun held the red band, from .64 to .67 micrometers. The blue gun held the green band, from .53 to .59 micrometers. Q2 The image looks strange because Near Infrared is being displayed. As a result, red and green are being expressed in other guns as well. But largely, the portrayal of Near Infrared radiation is what is causing the image to look abnormal. Q3 The water looks black, while the vegetated areas look red and the urban areas are a light teal or green color. Q4 In the 4-3-2 combination, colors are conveyed as they would be to the naked eye. This composite is a true color composite, where each gun is holding its respective band (e.g. the red band is placed in the red color gun). Q5 True color composites are not as useful for certain purposes. A 5-4-3 combination, for example, displays NIR which is helpful in determining the health of vegetation. Furthermore, true color composites fail to show other things the naked eye can’t see - such as thermal energy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
