MOD 11 - Land Surface Temperature and Emissivity

The Aqua MOD11 product is similar to the Terra MOD11 product. It contains Level 2 and 3 LST and emissivity retrieved from Aqua MODIS data at spatial resolutions of 1 km and 5 km over global land surfaces under clear-sky conditions. The generalized split-window LST algorithm will be used to retrieve LST for MODIS pixels with known emissivities in bands 31 and 32. The physicsbased day/night LST al-gorithm will be used to simultaneously retrieve surface band emissivities and tempera-tures from a pair of daytime and nighttime MODIS observations in bands 20, 22, 23, 29, and 31-33 over all types of land cover.
