Land Cover Thermodynamic Characteristics Defined by Remote Multispectral Data Based on Nonextensive Statistical Mechanics

This chapter reviews the values of landscape cover thermodynamic variables based on multispectral measurements of reflected solar radiation by Landsat 5 and 7 satellite systems at the local level (Central Forest State Nature Reserve, Tver Region, 1 pixel = 30 × 30m) and MODIS Terra at the regional level (East-European plain, MOD09A1 product, 1 pixel = 1 × 1 km). The calculation of the thermodynamic variables of the landscape cover is based on the nonextensive statistical mechanics model, which is a more general case of the classical mechanics and allows estimating the degree of nonlinearity of relations in a system and the degree of its organization.
