Temperature of a homogeneous land surface

  1. Oct 7, 2012 #1
    Hello,

    I have temperature and emissivity data values for different land types (i.e. rock, vegetation etc.) of an area in form of image pixels.
    Because there are different land types, they show different temperatures.
    I want to know the temperature of these pixels as if they were of the same land type.
    In other words, I want to remove the land type effect in the result temperature that I want to calculate.
    And lets say that emissivity range is 0 to 1. Can I simply multiply the temperature with the emissivity value to get what I want?
