    The UOL LST product contains full resolution nadir-view Land Surface Temperature (LST) values, generated by the University of Leicester (UOL). These products use the same LST retrieval method as the Gridded Surface Temperature (ATS_NR__2P) products, however significantly improved auxiliary datasets for land cover, green vegetation fraction and total column water vapour are applied (see "Available Resources" section below for details). In addition to LST, the UOL LST products contain the aforementioned auxiliary information, LST uncertainty estimates, NDVI and quality control flags.

    The UOL LST products are provided in NetCDF-4 format, and have been generated from the 3rd reprocessed AATSR dataset by the LST project team at the University of Leicester funded by ESA and NCEO.
