Generating High Temporal Resolution Land Surface Temperature Data for Urban Studies
This lecture examines the state-of-the-art methodologies for generating consistent, high temporal-resolution LST data and explores the use of satellite derived LST data to analyze urbanization processes and surface urban heat islands in selected cities in the North America and Asia, followed by discussion on scientific and technological challenges and future opportunities.
