Paper Abstract

Surface albedo is widely used in energy balance of the earth surface, weather forecast, global change research and water circulation. The different land surface features and land cover conditions can cause the anisotropy of surface albedo distribution. It is a powerful tool to derive large area of regional surface albedo using remote sensing technique. Based on a topographic and atmospheric correction, different band integration approaches form ETM were attempted to obtain the surface albedo over the upper reaches of Tarim River. The relationship between land surface albedo and land use type is researched by taking account of the particularity of the basin's geography character.
