Location map of project study sites in California, USA. Temperature data recorded across the Teakettle landscape were partitioned into two categories, modeled data and verified data. The modeled data sensors were used to calculate lapse rates needed for estimating surface temperature from 17 individual locations. Verified data were collected at 29 separate locations to estimate the accuracy of the landscape surface temperature model.
