Paper Abstract

Use of Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper data has been difficult due to uncertainty about the calibration constants. In order to establish a correct relation between the satellite signal and surface temperature, it has been necessary to use a high number of in-situ data for each new satellite scene. In the period 1984 - 1992 we used Landsat 5 TM data for mapping Sea surface temperatures at 20 occasions. We have been able to derive a linear correlation between pixel values in system corrected digital TM data and in situ measured temperatures.
