We're currently researching urban heat distributions in Germany using Landsat 8 data.
As stated in the Collection 2 Level 2 Science Product Guide, Band 10 of this product is the processed data of Landsat's thermal infrared sensors transformed into surface temperature in Kelvin.
When I download the data using the Earth Explorer or Google Earth Engine, every Picture has the same pattern of missing data on it – regardless of the time, when it was captured.
To illustrate the issue see those two images from 2013 and 2021, both with the same pattern of missing data. The 2013 image is from path 194, row 26, the 2021 image from path 193, row 26.
Why is the data missing in this areas?
Are there any comparable products with pre-calculated surface temperature for non-US regions?
