The use of thermal infrared remote sensing in the study of desertification is discussed. The model used to determine land surface temperature is outlined. A new method for obtaining atmospheric and emissivity coefficients and for mapping thermal emissivity is described. The results obtained using remote sensing in three European projects on desertification are described. In EFEDA (European Field Experiment in a Desertification-Threatened Area) in Spain a digitized map of the area was obtained.
