MODIS/Terra Land Surface Temperature/Emissivity 8-Day L3 Global 1km SIN Grid V005

Version 005
  • Abstract
    The level-3 MODIS global Land Surface Temperature (LST) and Emissivity 8-day data are composed from the daily 1-kilometer LST product (MOD11A1) and stored on a 1-kilometer Sinusoidal grid as the average values of clear-sky LSTs during an 8-day period. MOD11A2 is comprised of daytime and nighttime LSTs, quality assessment, observation times, view angles, bits of clear-sky days and nights, and emissivities estimated in Bands 31 and 32 from land cover types. Version-5 MODIS/Terra Land Surface Temperature/Emissivity products are validated to Stage 2, which means that their accuracy has been assessed over a widely distributed set of locations and time periods via several ground-truth and validation efforts. Further details regarding MODIS land product validation for the LST/E products are available from the following URL: http://landval.gsfc.nasa.gov/ProductStatus.php?ProductID=MOD11 V005 Data Set Characteristics Temporal Coverage March 5, 2000 - March 29, 2017 Area: ~1100 x 1100 km File Size: ~5 MB compressed Projection: Sinusoidal Data Format: HDF-EOS Image Dimensions: 1200 x 1200 rows/columns Resolution: 1 kilometer (actual: 0.93 km) Science Data Sets (SDS HDF Layers): 12
