Abstract. In order to obtain ground truth data for multispectral thermal infrared sensors such as TIMS and ASTER, in situ spectral emissivity measurements were made during field surveys. These spectral emissivity measurements and laboratory spectral reflectance measurements of field samples were compared to emissivity spectra extracted from TIMS data at the surveyed points. The results indicate that emissivity spectra derived from the TIMS data agree well in shape with the spectra measured in situ or in the laboratory.
