Albedo

Albedo is defined as the ratio of total upwelling to total downwelling solar radiation at the surface. It represents the energy balance at the soil-vegetation-atmosphere interface. The albedo allows to quantify the part of the energy that is absorbed by Earth surface and then transformed to heat. The albedo is a unitless variable ranging from…

Land Surface Temperature

Land Surface Temperature (LST) is the radiative skin temperature of the land. LST is a mixture of vegetation and soil temperatures. It plays an important role in the physic of land surfaces as it impacts the processes of energy and water exchange with the surrounding atmosphere. Unit:  Kelvin or Degree Celsius Available products over Greece:…
