In this paper, by processing the Chinese land surface emissivity data obtained from the Unites States NASA, the AA. obtain spatio-temporal data set of Chinese land surface emissivity with the spatial resolution of 0,05° x 0,05°, the time interval from 2001 to 2010, and analyze the spatio-temporal characteristics and the variation of Chinese land surface emissivity over the last 10 years. The results show that the land surface emissivity in the northwest desert region is the lowest in China, with little seasonal variations. In contrast, there are significant seasonal variations in land surface emissivity in northeast China and northern Xinjiang, the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the Yangtze River Valley and the eastern and southern China
