Derivation of split window algorithm and its sensitivity analysis for retrieving land surface temperature from Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract. Retrieval of land surface temperature (LST) from advanced very high resolution radiometer (AVHRR) data is an important methodology in remote sensing. Several split window algorithms have been proposed in last two decades. In this paper we intend to present a better algorithm with less parameters and high accuacry. The algorithm involves only two essential parameters (transmittance and emissivity). The principle and method for the linearization of Planck's radiance equation, the mathematical derivation process of the …
