Yunhao Chen, Jinling Quan, Wenfeng Zhan, Zheng Guo
2016 Remote Sensing  
Second, this study attempts to introduce the idea of using nighttime light data for Ta estimation and inspire others to further explore the relationship between the nighttime light data and Ta.  ...  Model inter-comparison shows that this method outperforms six additional empirical regressions that have not incorporated nighttime light data or considered predictor independence or coefficient dynamics  ...  The bias of the estimated Ta shows that the method has no clear preference for air temperatures, land covers, surface properties, or nighttime light in global terms, and is robust against data availability  ...
