ABSTRACT:
This research aimed to present the technique for land surface temperature analysis with the data from Landsat-8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) /Thermal Infrared Sensors (TIR) in Meuang Maha Sarakham District, Maha Sarakham Province, Northeastern, Thailand. The research was conducted as following three steps: 1) Collecting the satellite data in thermal infrared band from Landsat-8 TIR satellite to adjust the value of Top of Atmosphere (ToA) Reflectance and then analyzing the land surface temperature 2) Collecting multi-band data from Landsat-8 OLI satellite to adjust the value of Top of Atmosphere (ToA) Reflectance and then analyzing values of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Fractional Vegetation Cover (FVC) and Land surface Emissivity (LSE) 3) Bringing the results of 1) and 2) to analyze the land surface temperature with split window algorithm. The research results indicated that the analysis of the data from Landsat-8 OLI/TIR satellites in 18 March 2015 indicated a mean temperature of 33.57 °C.
