The Land Surface Temperature (LST) is the radiative skin temperature of the land surface, as measured in the direction of the remote sensor. It is estimated from Top-of-Atmosphere brightness temperatures from the infrared spectral channels of a constellation of geostationary satellites (Meteosat Second Generation, GOES, MTSAT/Himawari). Its estimation further depends on the albedo, the vegetation cover and the soil moisture.

LST is a mixture of vegetation and bare soil temperatures. Because both respond rapidly to changes in incoming solar radiation due to cloud cover and aerosol load modifications and diurnal variation of illumination, the LST displays quick variations too. In turn, the LST influences the partition of energy between ground and vegetation and determines the surface air temperature.

The Global Land Service provides the following LST-based products:

  • LST: hourly LST from instantaneous observations
  • LST10-DC: 10-day Land Surface Temperature with Daily Cycle
  • LST10-TCI: Thermal Condition Index with a 10-day composite of Land Surface Temperature.
