- SCSG-based interpolation method for cloudy-sky LSTs associated with ISPRS P&RS paper (Chen et al. 2023)
We developed a novel method to recover missing cloudy-sky MODIS LST data using the solar-cloud-satellite geometry. We have demonstrated a good accuracy of interpolation with a case study on the Tibet plateau. The codes (written in R) are freely available at github.

- Modified Noah LSM v3.4.1 associated with a manuscript submitted to Earth’s Future(2022EF002652: Qinghai-Tibet Plateau permafrost at risk in the late 21st century).
This release is the version used for the simulation in the work submitted to Earth’s Future. Key improvements in the modified Noah LSM codes include a modified thermal roughness scheme for sparse vegetation typical of the QTP, improved parameterization of thermal and hydraulic conductivities to account for coarse-grained QTP soils and ground-ice, and an expansion of the simulation depth to below 15 m that allows for vertical soil heterogeneity. Download link to the source codes is provided.
