NERTO Synopsis: This assignment will involve working with the Land Surface Temperature team to validate GOES-16 LST products for the highly heterogeneous urban surfaces. The downscaling will be carried-out using high-resolution land cover classifications. The NERTO student will conduct cal/val of LST products against ground measurements to verify the accuracy and consistency of the GOES-16 TIR channels and Level-2 LST products. The student will also work in developing GOES-16 LST derived products for urban areas, specifically thermal storage and heat index.
