Study of biophysical parameters using remote sensing techniques to Quixeré-CE region.

Camilla Kassar Borges


This work aims to analyze the behavior and the spatial variability of energy fluxes, albedo, surface temperature and vegetation index (NDVI) through the SEBAL algorithm, used in remote sensing for different surfaces in the region of Quixeré-EC. It was used TM- Landsat 5 satellite images for the dates October 24, 2005 and August 8, 2006, where the SEBAL algorithm was applied to calculate the fluxes of H, LE, Rn, G, and the surface albedo. From the clippings of a coverage area of banana orchard, savanna and bare soil, in order to check the H + LE and Rn-G components of energy balance. Correlations greater than 0.99 was observed between the components of energy balance H + LE and Rn-G, the relationship between surface albedo and radiation balance in the orchard area showed higher correlations to 0.88, the area comprised by savanna, for the day 297 showed no good correlation between variables, approximately 69% of unexplained variation in day 220 was about 0.88 correlation between the variables, this fact is associated homogeneous characteristics of the area that presented an increase of moisture available in relation to day 297.
