Has anyone dont a thermal image of?

Hello all

had an interesting inquiry today about thermal imaging.

it was asked if thermal imaging could be used to scan an area where a house had burnt down to see if the debris had been buried or cleaned away?

the ground had been leveled,

thought I would inquire with the group,
to see what ya’ll had to say bout that, lol

That’s what GPR is for: http://www.geophysical.com/whatisgpr.htm

If the temp of the ground has reached equilibrium in my opinion IR will do you no good.


You may be able to see where the soil was disturbed due to density, but nothing below grade will change the emissivity or specific heat of the soil above.

You can also use a GEMS scanner (treasure hunters top end scanner).
Cheaper than GPR services.
