Paper Abstract

This study presents a new technique for the separation of land surface infrared emissivity and surface skin temperature using high spectral resolution infrared observations. High spectral resolution observations of upwelling radiance at 20 km altitude were obtained by the Scanning High-resolution Interferometer Sounder (S-HIS) aboard the NASA ER-2 aircraft during the TX-2001 experiment. These aircraft observations are used in conjunction with complementary ground-based observations of downwelling radiance at the surface to estimate the surface skin temperature and absolute emissivity for a region in north central Oklahoma, USA. Coincident MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS) observations are used to quantify the land surface variability within the S-HIS scene in the vicinity of the DOE ARM Southern Great Plain central facility. Ground truth data is presented from a ground based Scanning Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer. This remote sensing technique has application to satellite based observations from the NASA AIRS, the NPOESS CrIS, the EUMETSAT IASI, and the NASA GIFTS instruments.
