Kornfield, J., and J. Susskind, 1977: On the effect of surface emissivity on temperature retrievals. Mon. Weather Rev., 105, 1605-1608, doi:10.1175/1520-0493(1977)105<1605:OTEOSE>2.0.CO;2.

The variability of surface emissivity over land, and the resultant error in retrieved surface and atmospheric temperatures due to use of an incorrect surface emissivity in inverting infrared radiance observations, are discussed and found to be significant.
