The combination of temporal vague set theory and rough set theory is developed in this paper. The lower and upper approximation operators of a temporal vague set are constructed, which is partitioned by an indiscernibility relation in Pawlak approximation space, and the concept of rough temporal vague sets is proposed as a generalization of rough vague sets. Further properties associated with the lower and upper approximations of temporal vague sets are studied. Finally, the roughness measure of a temporal vague set is defined as an extension of the parameterized roughness measure of a vague set. Meantime, some properties of roughness measure are established.
