About this book

Although remote sensing is recognised as a powerful tool in the collection, analysis and modelling of environmental data, less attention has been given to the use of thermal, and especially thermal infrared, remote sensing. This is especially useful for understanding the fluxes and redistribution of materials as a key aspect of land surface processes and land atmospheric interrelationships. This book presents contributions that elucidate the utility of thermal infrared remote sensing data from researchers in a range of fields.

Contents

Section 1: Thermal Infrared Data for Assessment and Quantification of Surface Energy Fluxes and Soil Moisture. 1. Estimating environmental variables using thermal remote sensing. 2. Land surface temperature retrieval techniques and applications (Case of the AVHRR) 3. High spatial resolution mapping of surface energy balance components with remotely sensed data. 4. Estimating spatially-distributed surface fluxes in a semi-arid Great Basin desert using Landsat TM thermal data. 5. Coupling thermal infrared and visible satellite measurements to infer biophysical variables at the land surface. 6. Rapid soil drying and its implication for remote sensing of soil moisture and the surface energy budgets. 7. Mapping surface energy fluxes with radiometric temperature. Section 2: Thermal Infrared Data for Assessment of Ecosystem Health. 8. Thermal infrared measurement as an indicator of planet ecosystem health. 9. Exergy analysis of ecosystems: Establishing a role for thermal remote sensing. Section 3: Thermal Infrared Instruments and Calibration. 10. Calibration of thermal infrared (TIR) sensors. 11. MUST: A MediUm Scale surface Temperature mission dedicated to environment and agriculture.
