MOD11A2_006

MODIS/Terra Land Surface Temperature/Emissivity 8-Day L3 Global 1km SIN Grid V006

Version 006
  • Abstract
    The MOD11A2 version 6 product provides an average, 8-day, per-pixel land surface temperature (LST) in a 1200 x 1200 kilometer grid. Each pixel value in the MOD11A2 is a simple average of all the corresponding MOD11A1 LST pixels collected within that 8 day period. The 8 day compositing period was chosen because twice that period is the exact ground track repeat period of the Terra and Aqua platforms. In this product, along with both the day- and night-time surface temperature bands and their quality indicator (QC) layers, are also MODIS bands 31 and 32 and eight observation layers. Validation at stage 2 has been achieved for all MODIS LST/Emissivity products.
