In order to obtain high quality data from ground-based measurements of land-surface temperature and radiance to validate the MODIS LST product at the size of MODIS pixels (1km at nadir direction or larger at off-nadir directions), we conducted field campaigns only over large homogeneous sites such as lake, playa, and snow fields. We also conducted field campaigns in large grasslands and croplands.
