The MODIS/Terra Land Surface Temperature and Emissivity (LST&E) products provide per-pixel temperature and emissivity values in a sequence of swath-based to grid-based global products. The MODIS/Terra LST&E Daily L3 Global Coarse Resolution (Short name: MOD11B1) is a tile of daily LST and emissivities at 6 km spatial resolution in the Sinusoidal projection. It is generated by the day/night LST algorithm (Wan and Li, 1997).
The product consists of 8 daily products stored in one file produced every 8 days. This algorithm is optimally used to separate ranges of atmospheric column water vapor and lower boundary air surface temperatures into tractable sub-ranges. The surface emissivities in bands 31 and 32 are estimated from land cover types. The MOD11B1 products are projected in a Sinusoidal grid by mapping the level-2 LST product (MOD11_L2) on 5 or 6 km Sinusoidal grids.
The C41 and C5 MODIS/Terra LST/E products, including the MOD11B1, are validated to Stage-2 with well-defined uncertainties over a range of representative conditions. Further details regarding MODIS land product validation for the LST/E products are available from the MODIS land team validation site referenced under 'Val Status' section.
The C5 MOD11_L2 product's acquisition range started March 5, 2000 (2000-065) and will continue until some time after the C6 reprocessing is complete.
