Infrared Thermal Wave Imagery (image) Naval Research Laboratory Caption An example of a raw infrared image of the water surface with observed thermal streaks showing the effect of nonbreaking waves, propagating from right to left, on water in a wave tank. The straight vertical row of bright dotted lines are thermal markers, and the lighter horizontal streaks correspond to elongated, near-surface, eddies.
