MODIS/Aqua 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 (MYD11A1) and stored on a 1-km Sinusoidal grid as the average values of clear-sky LSTs during an 8-day period. MYD11A2 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/Aqua 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=MYD11 This product is ready for use in science applications/publications. V005 Data Set Characteristics: Area: ~1100 x 1100 km Image Dimensions: 1200 x 1200 rows/columns File Size: ~4 MB compressed Resolution: ~1 km (0.93 km) Projection: Sinusoidal Data Format: HDF-EOS Science Data Sets (SDS HDF Layers): 12
