<Day- Night Temperatures>

<National Coverage of Land Surface Temperatures including Day, Night, and Day-Night Difference>
<Vegetation Stress and Land Surface Disturbance>



<One to a few lines describing the product. The satellite day and night land surface temperatures (LST) product is derived from Aqua- and Terra- MODIS sensors at 8-day frequencies and used for plant stress monitoring and, in combination with vegetation indices, detection of disturbance events.

<Optional further lines, for instance describing sensor and product purpose.>
