Ifugao province of the Philippines has a traditional muyong forest system that supplies water and prevents soil erosion of the world-famous Ifugao rice terraces. The socio-political structure of Ifugao has been the key to the maintenance and communal use of land, as well as the muyong forest, without causing excessive damage to the land. Recently, the Ifugao is facing various challenges viz. deforestation, slash-and-burn, introduction of commercial rice, and climate change.

This paper describes a number of pieces of work that we have carried out in connection with surface temperature, making use if satellite thermal infrared data. The study involves estimating land surface temperature, sea surface temperature, land sub-surface temperature and forest fires. A plane-parallel radiative transfer model was used to derive a multi-channel method for retriving land surface temperature from space. The perfomance and reliability of this algorithm has been tested for a dry atmosphere whose value of surface temperature lies between 255 and 280 K.
