LST is an important parameter for assessing the physics of land surface processes (local and global), such as the surface energy balance between atmosphere and ground. It is widely used in a variety of fields including climate change, vegetation monitoring, urban climate and environmental studies. LST is difficult to estimate and validate due to the strong heterogeneity of land surface characteristics such as vegetation and soil, causing it to rapidly change in space as well as in time. Satellite data offers the best option for measuring LST over the entire globe with sufficiently high temporal resolution. See the below links for LST data.
