This paper introduces the principle and technique to measure surface temperature using the OS530 series Handheld Infrared Thermometer produced by OMEGA. Surface temperature data obtained over sand area are used to analysis. The results indicate that the error from solar radiation should be corrected when the infrared thermometer is used to get surface temperature for full days.
