Land Surface Temperature

Hulley, Glynn C.; Ghent, Darren; Göttsche, Frank M.; Guillevic, Pierre C.; Mildrexler, David J.; Coll, César

An introduction to the chapter on Land Surface Temperature (LST).

The basic thermal infrared theory is presented with example algorithms for the retrieval of LST and emissivity data are described in the later section.

Various methods to validate satellite Land Surface Temperature (LST) products exist, but the most accurate and conclusive method is the direct comparison against in situ LST obtained from spatially representative radiance measurements over homogeneous sites. Some validation results and insights found in the literature are provided and the determination of in situ emissivity and LST with thermal infrared field radiometers is explained. The chapter concludes with an example of satellite LST product validation over a rice paddy in Spain and a study of spatial representativeness performed during an international field intercomparison experiment in the Namib desert.

The capabilities and features of LST satellite instruments, their availability, and data formats are described in the later section.

A thermodynamic paradigm for studying disease vector's habitats and life cycles using NASA's remote sensing data is being proposed. ... mehr
