The SAIL-Thermique model was developed to simulate land surface emissivity. It is adapted from the original SAIL model. A specific experiment was set-up over a soybean canopy for evaluating spectral emissivity simulations. Multispectral data were obtained thanks to a CIMEL CE 312-2 radiometer and emissivities calculated using the TES method. Comparison of multispectral emissivity simulations and measurements at various leaf area index levels were comparable in terms of emissivity values and spectral behavior.
