Abstract

Surface temperatures from the TOVS Pathfinder Path A dataset were compared with in situ measurements for the Little Washita (1996-1998) and the FIFE study sites (1987). It was found that the uncertainties of the daily values calculated from TOVS data were too high for calibration/validation applications with hydrological models. Surface temperatures obtained from the VIC-3L model (FIFE 87) exhibited good agreement compared to the in situ measurements.
