This animation shows changes in global land surface temperature over the course of 2017, using NASA Terra Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data. The images were created using the 8-day composite Terra MODIS Land Surface Temperature (LST) data product (MOD11C2). MODIS LST data is managed, archived and distributed by NASA's Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC). LP DAAC is one of NASA's Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) DAACs that manage, archive and distribute Earth science data as part of NASA's Earth Science Data Systems Program (ESDS). It is located at the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
