Definitions for "Thermal radiation"
Electromagnetic radiation emitted by electrons in a thermal gas.
Electromagnetic radiation emitted (in two pulses from an air burst) from the fireball as a consequence of its very high temperature; it consists essentially of ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiations. In the early stages (first pulse of an air burst), when the temperature of the fireball is very high, the ultraviolet predominates; in the second pulse, the temperatures are lower and most of it is in the visible and infrared regions of the spectrum.
radiation produced by a body because it is hotter than its surroundings. In producing radiation, the body reduces its thermal energy.
the intense hear and light released in a nuclear explosion. Thermonuclear Weapon-the most destructive type of nuclear weapon.
Energy that is output from a source as a result of its temperature.
