ABSTRACT. – The land surface temperature distribution during 7th august 2012 using Modis Imagery in Iasi metropolitan area. 2012 was the hottest year recorded at Iasi weather station in the 1961-2015 interval. In this paper we investigate the possibility to use MOD11A1 and MYD11A1 as an visualizing and analysis tool of land surface temperatures distribution in urban and nearest rural areas during heat waves according to the land use.. We observed that MODIS nighttime view instances could detect strongly urbanized surfaces like concrete and asphalt to have higher values than the green areas as parks and forests.
