Abstract

Methods have recently been developed to deduce heat fluxes in the atmospheric surface layer from remotely sensed temperatures. Since such determinations are subject to some uncertainties, it is desirable to investigate the relation between surface air temperatures and heat fluxes starting from surface based heat flux recordings, combined with a sensitivity study. This study shows that the heat fluxes derived are very sensitive to different surface characteristics and that surface based measurements are indispensable.
