Reprocessing Complete for MODIS Aqua and Terra LST&E V6 Data Products

November 28, 2018
By: LP DAAC

The MODIS Aqua Land Surface Temperature and Emissivity (LST&E) Version 6 data products (MYD21s) from July 2002 to present have been reprocessed to correct science data quality issues that were present when the data were initially released. The MYD21 data products are being released with stage 1 maturity status. The MODIS Terra LST&E Version 6 data products (MOD21s) from 2000 to 2005 are being released as provisional maturity status due to a crosstalk issue that negatively impacted certain bands. These LST&E data products at 1 kilometer resolution are used for many Earth surface related studies such as surface energy balance modeling and land cover/land use change detection.
