Research Title: GOES-16 Level 2 Land Surface Temperature - Filling For Cloud Masked Data
The GOES-16 satellite ground segment team develops different levels of environmental products and makes them readily available to the public. The Level 2 Land Surface Temperature (LST) product aims to provide a remote measurement of the Earth’s surface temperature every hour. The product however, does not calculate values for pixels where the satellite imager’s view is obstructed by clouds, as determined by a cloud mask intermediate product.
