A generalized split-window algorithm for retrieving land-surface temperature from space

We propose a generalized split-window method for retrieving land-surface temperature (LST) from AVHRR and MODIS data. Accurate radiative transfer simulations show that the coefficients in the split-window algorithm for LST must vary with the viewing angle, if we are to achieve a LST accuracy of about 1 K for the whole scan swath range (1t5.5" from nadir) and for the ranges of surface temperature and atmospheric conditions over land, which are much wider than those over oceans. We obtain these… CONTINUE READING
