Abstract The use of satellite remote sensing is indispensable to improving the understanding of the processes of land surface-atmosphere interactions on a scale of 10 000 kmr in HEIFE. Because of their high spatial resolution, Landsat TM observations can be compared directly with surface measurements and be used for this purpose. The relevant data set and a state-of-the-art data processing methodology are discussed. A summer scene of TM was used to produce a set of maps of surface albedo, vegetation index, surface temperature, net radiation and other basic energy balance components of the whole area. Statistical analysis based on these maps revealed some quantitatively significant land surface parameters. Future developments are discussed.
