For the conditions of Tomsk, on the basis of standard ground-based measurements of the surface temperature we tested two methods, used for the atmospheric correction of the satellite measurements of the land surface temperature, namely the spectral regression method and physical-based (RTM) approach. The obtained data demonstrate clear advantages of the used physical-based approach, which is more accurate than the spectral regression method, both under conditions of clear-sky measurements and in the presence of clouds.
