A critical component in our understanding of the physical climate system and biogeochemical cycles lies in knowledge of the thermal environment since all processes of interest are thermally mediated. Extending existing thermal models to account for thermal radiance transfers within and external to a rough forest canopy-soil system for a range of spatial/temporal scales is a significant factor in providing improved capabilities for better understanding of the current state of forest ecosystems and form the basis for interpretation and utilization of remote sensing thermal imagery. An enhanced model is described and tested by application to a spruce-fir study site
