Thermography is a method with a wide range of applications in many fields. The objective of this preliminary study was to explore its potential in analysis of local climate in an industrialized area. We did this by thermal imagining the main source of pollution and examining the relationship between thermal layers of emitted gasses, selected climate conditions and air quality indicators. By processing the captured images we obtained the number of pixels in the diverse temperature levels and then we compared them with climatic conditions, carbon dioxide and ozone. Detected correlations suggest that this method may be applicable to further research. However the methodology of collecting climatic and air quality data needs to be adjusted in future studies.
