MODIS/Terra Land Surface Temperature/Emissivity Monthly L3 Global 0.05Deg CMG V004Entry ID: MOD11C34
Abstract: The MODIS/Terra V4 LST/E 8-Day L3 Global CMG product (Short name: MOD11C3) is a monthly composited average, derived from the MOD11C1 daily global product, and stored as clear-sky LST values during a month’s period in a 0.05º (5600 meters) geographic CMG. MOD11C3, therefore, inherits all the structural features of its MOD11C1 parent except for the temporal configuration. Please refer to the MOD11C1 ... product documentation for all algorithm-related details.
The V4 MOD11C3 product comprises the following Science Data Set (SDS) layers for daytime and nighttime observations: LSTs, quality control assessments, observation times, view zenith angles, clear sky coverages, and emissivities for bands 20, 22, 23, 29, 31, and 32.
The V4 Terra/MODIS LST/E products, including MOD11C3, are validated to Stage-1 with well-defined uncertainties over a range of representative conditions. Further details regarding MODIS land product validation for the LST/E products is available from the following URL: http://landval.gsfc.nasa.gov/ProductStatus.php?ProductID=MOD11
This product is ready for use in science applications/publications. Subsequent and improved versions of this product also exist.
The V4 MOD11C3 product has an acquisition range from February 24, 2000 (2000-055) until December 31, 2006 (2006-365). The V4 collection remains consistent with V41, and users may combine the two collections in a time-series analysis.
