Use of satellite-based sensing in land surface climatology

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Common types of satellite-derived measurements are reviewed with respect to how they are used to provide information on variables important to land surface climatology. The variables considered include solar radiation , surface albedo, surface temperature, outgoing longwave radiation, cloud cover, net radiation, soil moisture, latent and sensible heat flux, surface cover and leaf area index. A selection of land surface climate modelling schemes is identified and considered with a view to their practicality for use with satellite-derived data
