Description: State key laboratory of Remote Sensing Science, Institute of Remote Sensing Applications, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing 100101, China. A Two-layer Surface Energy Balance Parameterization Scheme (TSEBPS) is proposed for the estimation of surface heat fluxes using Thermal Infrared (TIR) data over sparsely vegetated surfaces. TSEBPS is based on the theory of the classical two-layer energy balance model, as well as a set of new formulations derived from assumption of the energy balance at limiting cases. Two experimental data sets are used to assess the reliabilities of TSEBPS. Based on these case studies, TSEBPS has proven to be capable of estimating heat fluxes at vegetation surfaces with acceptable accuracy. The uncertainties in the estimated heat fluxes are comparable to in-situ measurement uncertainties.
