The MODIS sensors aboard the twin satellites Aqua and Terra provide global coverage of earth’s surface every 1 to 2 days. MODIS’s spatial, spectral, and temporal resolution allow for imagery to be utilized for regional monitoring of vegetation, land surface temperature, and the environment. MODIS data is available for Terra (daily, 8 day, or 16 day composites), Aqua (daily, 8 day, or 16 day composites), and composite of Terra/Aqua 16 day using at surface reflectance data.
MODIS Land Surface Temperature (LST) product provides daytime land surface temperatures across all global land masses.
MODIS LST is sourced from the MOD11_L2 swath product. Cloud contaminated values are removed from this product (MOD11_L2 v006).
