IR-imagery observation and findings

In the band 5 imagery, near infra-red (wave length: 0.85-0.88 micro meter), about the center of the original island are relatively bright implying some vegetation, while newly developed island are relatively dark implying no vegetation.

 In the band 6 and 7 imagery (wave lengths: 1.57-1.65 micro meter and 2.11-2.29 micro meter respectively), some parts of newly developed island are relatively bright, which may imply lava flows. This is because a thermal radiation of land surface with high temperature affect brightness in short wave infra red bands.
