Surface Energy Balance Algorithm for Land (SEBAL)
"The relationship between visible and thermal infrared spectral radiances of areas with a sufficiently large hydrological contrast (dry and wet land surface types, vegetative cover is not essential) constitute the basis for the formulation of the new Surface Energy Balance Algorithm for Land (SEBAL)." (Bastiaanssen, 1998)
