In this paper we present a LST product obtained from Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) data. The product has been validated with in situ measurements carried out in the framework of the CarboEurope-Flex-and-Sentinel-2 (CEFLES2) campaign. In addition the paper present a comparison between the proposed product and the LST retrieved from different sensors as Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) onboard Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellite, Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) onboard NOAA and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) onboard AQUA/TERRA satellites, all these coincidently with the AATSR overpass. The comparison has been carried out in two ways; a) by using the LST values retrieved from the SW algorithms developed by our Global Change Unit for each sensor, and b) with the official products provided by EOS Data Gateway, LandSAF and ESA EOLI Catalogue.
