Monitoring the flux transfer of mass and energy occurring within the soil-plant-Atmosphere continuum is a pivotal key for understanding hydrological and vegetation relationships. Average daily values of the Priestley-Taylor (PT) parameter were calculated for 4 eddy covariance (EC) flux tower sites from FLUXNET network, characterized by different vegetation features, over the 2010-12 reference period. Site-by-site feature spaces (built by difference in diurnal and night-Time land surface temperature versus enhanced vegetation index, ΔLST-EVI) were obtained by combining satellite data (MODIS) and observed PT parameter (φ) retrieved by FLUXNET surface energy balance (SEB) fluxes. The results revealed the capability of satellite time-series data to monitor seasonal changes in φ. This preliminary observation offers a promising tool for exploring the feature spaces in respect to the time, helping to retrieve useful information for environmental monitoring.

Abstract

Monitoring the flux transfer of mass and energy occurring within the soil-plant-Atmosphere continuum is a pivotal key for understanding hydrological and vegetation relationships. Average daily values of the Priestley-Taylor (PT) parameter were calculated for 4 eddy covariance (EC) flux tower sites from FLUXNET network, characterized by different vegetation features, over the 2010-12 reference period. Site-by-site feature spaces (built by difference in diurnal and night-Time land surface temperature versus enhanced vegetation index, ΔLST-EVI) were obtained by combining satellite data (MODIS) and observed PT parameter (φ) retrieved by FLUXNET surface energy balance (SEB) fluxes. The results revealed the capability of satellite time-series data to monitor seasonal changes in φ. This preliminary observation offers a promising tool for exploring the feature spaces in respect to the time, helping to retrieve useful information for environmental monitoring.
