In this paper, close-range remote sensing is used to assess error caused by viewing geometry in remote measurements of net radiation, an important surface climate variable. Estimates of net radiation were made by inserting remotely sensed values of albedo and surface temperature into the surface radiation budget equation. Two contrasting surfaces, one vegetated and one bare, were evaluated at seven view angles and five azimuth angles. The remote net radiation measurements for each combination of view and azimuth angle then were compared to reference measurements to assess error
