Land Surface Temperature Dataset of Typical Stations in Middle Reaches of Heihe River Basin Based on UAV Remote Sensing(2019-07-09,V1)

Land surface temperature is a critical parameter in land surface energy balance. This dataset provides the monthly land surface temperature of UAV remote sensing for typical ground stations in the middle reaches of Heihe River basin from July to September in 2019. The land surface temperature retrieval algorithm is an improved single-channel algorithm, which was applied to the land surface brightness temperature data obtained by the UAV thermal infrared remote sensing sensor, and finally the land surface temperature data with a spatial resolution of 0.4m was obtained.

Data file naming and use method

File name: land surface temperature data is stored in TIFF format. The file name is "yyyymmdd"_ XX.tiff ”Where yyyy represents the year, mm represents the month, DD represents the day, and XX represents the site. DM is Daman super station, SD is Zhangye wetland station, Hz is huazhaizi station.
Data reading method: the land surface temperature data is stored in TIFF format, which can be read and displayed by ArcGIS software.
