The project in a nutshell
Infrared satellite provide information of the temperature at the surface over the first micrometers in a layer called “skin layer”. This temperature slightly differ from what is observed by in-situ sensors in the top layer (a few cm below the surface) called “bulk layer”. The aim of this project is to measure both skin and bulk temperature over a long period with radiometers and a thermistor chain and finally provide a robust lake-base parameterization of the skin to bulk conversion.
