Abstract

Surface emissivities play an important role in thermal remote sensing, since knowledge of them is required to estimate land surface temperature with enough accuracy. They are also important in other environmental or geological studies. We show the results obtained for the emissivity spectra of different natural surfaces (water, green, and senescent vegetation) by applying the temperature and emissivity separation (TES) algorithm to ground-based measurements collected at the field with a multiband thermal radiometer. The results have been tested with data included in spectral libraries, and rms errors lower than 0.01 have been found, except for senescent vegetation. Two methods are also proposed to apply the TES algorithm to measurements achieved in the laboratory: (i) by heating the sample and (ii) using a box with reflective walls.
