Abstract
During the last the two decades, the scientific community developed detailed mathematical models for simulating land surface energy fluxes and crop evapotranspiration rates by means of a energy balance approach. These models can be applied in large areas and with a spatial distributed approach using surface brightness temperature and some ancillary data retrieved from satellite/airborne remote sensed imagery. In this paper a district scale application in combination with multispectral (LandaSat 7 TM data) and hyperspectral airborne MIVIS data has been carried out to test the potentialities of two different energy balance models to estimate evapotranspiration fluxes from a set of typical Mediterranean crops (wine, olive, citrus). The impact of different spatial and radiometric resolutions of MIVIS (3m x 3m) and LandSat (60m x 60m) on models-derived fluxes has been investigated to understand the roles and the main conceptual differences between the two models which respectively use a "single-layer" (SEBAL) and a "two-layer" (TS) schematisation.
