In June 2019 the ESA organized the airborne SurfSense campaign in the frame of the study of Copernicus candidate High Spatio-Temporal Resolution Land Surface Temperature Monitoring (LSTM) mission study. Parco delle Biancane was added as secondary target since the occurrence of a field campaign organized by INGV aimed to measure surface temperature using data acquired by different sensors at different spatial resolutions: Earth Observation (EO) data from the ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS, ) and thermal images acquired by the FlyBit drone. In addition to these data, the airborne sensor Hyperspectral Thermal Emission Spectrometer (HyTES) was flown over the area. Our goal is to test the possibility to integrate data at different observation scales and to use the proximal measurements to better understand the thermal structure, the interaction of the environment in test areas and to validate the methodology for estimating the surface temperature by using EO data.
