GC072:
Taking the temperature of the Earth: challenges, trends, and applications across all Earth surface domains





Session ID#: 24555

Session Description:
Surface temperature (ST) is a critical variable for studying the energy and water balances of the Earth surface, and monitoring the effects of climate change, and there is an urgent need for better understanding of in situ measurements and satellite observations to quantify ST as it changes from day to day, month to month. The EarthTemp network was established in 2012 to stimulate new international collaboration in measuring and better understanding correlations of different ST’s across the Earth’s surface including air, land, sea, lakes, and ice. This will be the 5th EarthTemp session at the AGU and will include topics related to 1) progress in improving the quality of ST products through rigorous validation, 2) monitoring variability and long-term climate trends, and 3) applications of ST data to detect and better understand Earth system behavior.
