Phys .org: University of Leicester leads new project to accurately measure Earth’s land temperature. “The Land Surface Temperature CCI project is part of a coordinated effort to understand surface temperature change across domains within the European Space Agency’s Climate Change Initiative (CCI), which confronts the challenging set of satellite-based product requirements for climate. Accurate knowledge of land surface temperature (LST) plays a key role in describing the physics of land-surface processes at regional and global scales as they combine information on both the surface-atmosphere interactions and energy fluxes within the Earth Climate System. This provides important information across a range of disciplines including monitoring drought, impact on human health, and changes in vegetation.”
