Release of MODIS Version 6.1 Land Surface Temperature and 3-Band Emissivity Data Products

February 08, 2021
By: LP DAAC

The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) is pleased to announce the availability of the Terra and Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Version 6.1 Land Surface Temperature and 3-Band Emissivity product suite. These collections will continue to grow as historical and forward processing is completed. Version 6 Land Surface Temperature and 3-Band Emissivity data products will remain available and will continue with forward processing during this transition. Details on product improvements for Version 6.1 are provided on the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) landing pages.

Along with the release of the existing Land Surface Temperature and 3-Band Emissivity products, LP DAAC is pleased to announce the release of new daily, 8-day, and monthly datasets at 0.05 degree (~5,600 meter) spatial resolution in a global Climate Modeling Grid (CMG) for use in climate simulation models.

A citation containing the DOI for each dataset is provided below.
