The study addresses the use of the split-window method in tropical regions for estimation of surface temperature over heterogeneous surfaces from satellite sensor data. An attempt has been made to derive emissivity in the thermal channels using the NDVI in conjunction with fractional vegetation cover at pixel level. The estimated surface temperature values are compared with the in situ data over the region and are found to be within error limits of +/- 1.8°C. The utility of fractional vegetation cover in controlling surface temperature has been studied for the selected features over the area. The results suggest the utility of emissivity estimated from the NDVI in land surface temperature estimation.
