Australian mean land-surface temperature

Haynes, Marcus; Horowitz, Frank G.; Sambridge, Malcolm; Gerner, Ed J.; Beardsmore, Graeme R.


The mean land-surface temperature represents an important boundary condition for many geothermal studies. This boundary is particularly important to help constrain the models made to analyse resource systems, many of which are shallow in nature and observe relatively small thermal gradients. Consequently, a mean land-surface temperature map of the Australian continent has been produced from 13 years of MODIS satellite imagery, for the period 2003–2015. The map shows good agreement with...[Show more]
