Abstract

There exists a scaling error in currently downscaling land surface temperature (DLST) processes and it is necessary to develop substantial methods specially for reducing it. In this letter, a multiple regional correction (MRC) approach with multiple correction terms (mCTs) was proposed to correct scaling errors in DLST processes. The test results indicate that (1) the proposed approach can effectively correct the scaling effects in DLST processes at high resolutions by reducing root mean square error by ~ 55%; (2) all initial resolutions considered for optical data (0.5 m – 4 m) were effective for developing the MRC approach with mCTs in correcting the scaling errors. Overall, this novel approach can significantly improve the accuracy of DLST maps at very high resolutions.
