Encyclopedia > Temporal resolution

Temporal resolution refers to the precision of a measurement with respect to time. Often there is a tradeoff between temporal resolution of a measurement and its spatial precision (spatial resolution). In Wikipedia, precision has the following meanings: In engineering, science, industry and statistics, precision characterises the degree of mutual agreement among a series of individual measurements, values, or results - see accuracy and precision. ... Various meters Measurement is an observation that reduces an uncertainty expressed as a quantity. ... A pocket watch, a device used to tell time Look up time in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... Resolving power is the ability of a microscope or telescope to measure the angular separation of images that are close together. ...

Webvision: Temporal Resolution (2650 words)
Temporal summation is also affected by other test variables such as background luminance and the size of the stimulus size.
An important aspect of cone vision is that when the short-wavelength pathway is isolated (Kelly, 1974), the temporal resolution is lower, close to 10-15 Hz, rather than the closer to 60 Hz for the longer wavelength pathways.
Temporal resolution is not as efficient at low luminances (scotopic vision).
Satellites and sensors - Temporal Resolution (403 words)
In addition to spatial, spectral, and radiometric resolution, the concept of temporal resolution is also important to consider in a remote sensing system.
Therefore the absolute temporal resolution of a remote sensing system to image the exact same area at the same viewing angle a second time is equal to this period.
Thus, the actual temporal resolution of a sensor depends on a variety of factors, including the satellite/sensor capabilities, the swath overlap, and latitude.
