Land Surface Temperature

The project aims to provide an accurate view of temperatures across land surfaces globally over the past 20-25 years.

About project

Land Surface Temperature is an important variable within the Earth climate system. It describes processes such as the exchange of energy and water between the land surface and atmosphere, and influences the rate and timing of plant growth.

Accurately understanding Land Surface Temperature at the global and regional level helps to evaluate land surface–atmosphere exchange processes in models and, when combined with other physical properties such as vegetation and soil moisture, provides a valuable metric of surface state.
