Method for preliminarily estimating the accuracy of MODIS meteorological data in the atmospheric correction of satellite IR measurements

Abstract

Based on results of a numerical simulation and the processing of real satellite data, a method is proposed for automatically estimating the quality of MODIS meteorological data used for the atmospheric correction of satellite IR measurements of land surface temperature.
