The land surface temperature (LST) plays an important role in the process of interaction between surface and atmosphere. It is widely need in meteorology, geology, hydrology, ecological and many other fields. This article uses the ETM+ data of February 16th, 2002 and August 27th, 2002, using the single window algorithm to retrieve the LST in the southern area of Gansu province. First step is removing cloud for image. Secondly, classifies the type of surface by dividing into three types of water surface, snow surfaces (winter) and natural surface. Then, estimate the emissivity according to the classification in order to calculate surface temperature. Through the analysis of spatial distribution of land surface temperature in the study area, the result shows QinZhiHao's single window algorithm is consistent with the reality.
