There are different scales and intensities of the volcanic eruption in the world every year. Existing medium wave infrared (MWI) remote sensing channels are often at atmospheric window in 3-5μm, lack of water vapor and carbon dioxide(CO2) absorption channels data, such as 2.2μm, 2.7μm and so on, however the 2.7μm absorption bands can be used as volcanoes, forest fires and other hot target identification. In order to obtain the high-temperature targets (HTT)radiation features, such as volcanic eruptions and forest fires in the water vapor absorption channels, Firstly, the HTT should be identified from the existing bands based on the temperature differences between the objects and the surrounding environment. Then, the HTT radiation features were simulated, and the correlation between the radiations of different bands were established with statistical analysis method. The HTT reorganization from remote sensing data, radiation characteristics simulation in different atmospheric models were described, then the bands transformed models were set up. The volcanic HTT radiation characteristics were simulated in wavelength 2.7μm and 4.433-4.498μm (band 24 of MODIS) based on the known bands of 3.55 -3.93μm (band 3 of FengYun-3 Visible and Infrared Scanning Radiometer (VIRR)). The simulated results were tested by the volcanic HTT radiation characteristics with 4.433-4.498μm by known bands of MODIS image and the simulated 4.433-4.498μm image. The causes of errors generated were analyzed. The study methods were useful to the new remote sensor bands imaging characteristics simulation analysis.
