Paper Abstract

In the precondition of the different land coverage classes response the different LSE values, an improved mono-window algorithm retrieval the LST from Landsat-5 thermal infrared (TIR) data is presented in this paper. Four classes (built-up area, vegetation area, bare land and water) have been selected in the experiment in Tianjin Binhai New Area. Based on supervised classification image, the experiment result shows that precision of the retrieved LSTs from the improved algorithm is higher than that from the single-channel algorithm.
