Paper Abstract

In this paper, it is shown the importance of thermal measurements to characterize different surfaces carried out in boreal environment in the SIFLEX (Solar Induced and Fluorescence Experiment) campaign. The data was acquired in Sodankyla (Finland), over the boreal forest, from 23rd April to 10th June 2002. Bio-geophysical parameters such as land surface temperature and emissivity were retrieved in relationship with other parameters from fluorescence measurements made with a Passive Multiwavelength Fluorescence Detector (PMFD). The thermal measurements of different targets (soil, vegetation, sky) under different observation angles have been carried out using a four-band field radiometer (CIMEL CE312) and two single band radiometers (EVEREST 3000.4ZLC and RAYTEK ST6). Angular measurements and transects have been also carried out concurrently to the satellites flights over the region.
