thermal photographies


Explanation:
In singular would be "thermography", but the problem is the plural form. "Thermal photographies" is a good solution, according to the EURODICAUTOM:

Reference: Moureau-Brace,Dict.of Petroleum Technology,1979,Technip(1,2);
Bates-Jackson,Gloss.of Geology,1987,American Geological Institute(1,DF,NT)

Definition: term suggested as a replacement for the phrase "thermal infrared imagery", analogous to the term "photography"

Explanation:
Infrared electromagnetic radiation is thermal radiation. Below "red frequencies" (infrared spectra) we (humans)cannot see (some animals can)alectromagnetic radiation anymore but we can feel it. It is what´s commonly called heat /warmth.

thermographies


Explanation:
this construction is perfectly possible.

"In this project used negative 50 Pa air-pressure in buildings. Thermographies of the buildings taken in normal pressure compared to thermographies taken during negative pressure. All thermal camera sessions filmed to video films.

thermograms


Explanation:
I wish you had provided some context. Typically, we reserve the term “thermography” to the process or technique itself, which is not a countable thing, so there usually is no need for the plural form of the word. On the other hand, the thermographic image is called a “thermogram,” and that is a countable term, so it can take the plural. Based on this distinction (which, alas, is not maintained by all writers) I suspect that the term you have posted (which is in the plural) refers to thermograms, not thermography, unless they are referring to several instances of the process. Here is a passage that illustrates the use of these two terms:

http://www.equinevetnet.com/veterinarian/imaging/thermograph...

“Thermography is the pictorial representation of the surface temperature of an object.l,2 It is a noninvasive technique that measures emitted heat. A medical thermogram represents the surface temperatures of skin making thermography useful for the detection of inflammation. This ability to noninvasively assess inflammatory change, makes thermography an ideal imaging tool to aid in the diagnosis of certain lameness conditions in the horse.”
