Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Land surface temperature is an important land surface parameter, and is widely used in agriculture, forestry, ecology, global change and other fields. Satellite remote sensing technology provides an effective way to obtain large-scale surface temperature information. The thermal infrared band of Landsat data are characteristic of high spatial resolution and long-term data accumulation, which can provide an ideal data source for such studies as global changes that require long-term sequence data accumulation. Based on Landsat data and generalized single channel algorithm, we obtained the Landsat surface temperature products of long time series (1986-2019) over China. This dataset can provide data support for the research and application in related fields, such as resource survey, ecological environment monitoring, and global change research.
