Shortwave-Infrared (SWIR)

Wavelength: 1.57-1.65µm and 2.08-2.35µm
"Short-wave infrared (SWIR) can help discriminate between dry and wet soils. It’s also used in the spectral signature for geology and soils classification. SWIR is also known for its ability to penetrate thin clouds, and even smoke and haze better than visible bands." (, 2018)
