The tops of thermals are usually visable in the form of cumulus clouds,
but is it possible to 'see' a thermal?
As the thermal is invisable to the naked eye, is there some sort of
technology that can detect either the heat (as the thermal is warmer than
the surrounding air), the dust particles or maybe water molicules that
make up the thermal.
