Panagiotis Sismanidis, Iphigenia Keramitsoglou, Benjamin Bechtel, Chris Kiranoudis
2016 Remote Sensing  
The downscaling of geostationary diurnal thermal data can ease the lack of land surface temperature (LST) datasets that combine high spatial and temporal resolution.  ...  Such LST predictors are the LST Annual Cycle Parameters (ACPs).  ...  These five parameters are: the mean annual surface temperature (MAST); the yearly amplitude of surface temperature (YAST); the phase shift of the sine function that approximates the LST annual cycle (Theta  ...
