Hyperspectral imaging for gas detection applications is an under-researched topic. The same gas model is used in most of the gas detection studies in the literature. This model aims to formulate the scene covering the gas emission as well as the background and the atmosphere. Therefore, the model requires prior knowledge on transmittance, emissivity, and temperature values of the components in the scene. The commonly used approaches to estimate these parameters include atmospheric modeling and statistical inference. However, accessing such information is costly in remote detection applications. Some studies avoid background characterization by decomposing the scene using spectral-spatial information.
