Paper Abstract

This paper presents a review of how data from the advanced spaceborne thermal emission radiometer (ASTER) can be used to estimate the energy fluxes from the land surface. The basic concepts of the energy balance at the land surface are presented along with an example of how remotely sensed surface brightness temperatures can be used to estimate the sensible heat. The example is from the Monsoon 90 experiment conducted over an arid watershed in the state of Arizona in the United States.
