This study demonstrated the application of Landsat imaging for estimating land surface temperature (LST; Ts) and air temperature (Ta) in Jakarta, Indonesia, using the observed relationship between Ts and Ta. The use of satellite remote-sensing data can help overcome the spatial problem of estimating Ta, particularly in areas with low station density, using satellite-based Ts estimation and ground-based relationships between Ts and Ta. Ts values were obtained from Landsat images taken in 1989 and 2006. The Landsat images were compared with ground-based measurements obtained in 2012. The results showed a strong correlation between Landsat Ts and ground-based Ts measurements (R2 = 0.79) which indicated the reliability of this approach to represent actual Ts values. To understand the relationship between Ta and Ts using satellite imagery in both years, a statistical approach was applied. The range of the determination coefficient (R2) between Ta and Ts in ground-based measurements was R2 = 0.77 in Landsat. This result demonstrating the usefulness of Ts as an indicator of Ta estimation in Jakarta by using image satellite.
