MODIS LST Group
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.
