Terra MODIS Version 6.1 Land Surface Temperature and 3-Band Emissivity (LST&E) data products for the period of October 23 (DOY 2022-296) through November 21, 2022 (DOY 2022-325 included) will be reprocessed. This reprocessing will address the Level-1B cross-talk change that was noticed in Terra long-wave infrared (LWIR) photovoltaic (PV) bands 27-30, following the Constellation Exit Maneuvers on October 12 and October 19, 2022. Terra MODIS land surface temperature for this period may show differences of up to 0.5-1 degree Kelvin, mainly over the vegetated areas. Users are requested to take note of this and start using the reprocessed versions of these products for any future studies.

An update will be posted when reprocessing of the Terra MODIS LST&E data is complete.
