The below code is going to calculate accumulative temperature by adding each image to the previous ones. Despite it works and plots values but csv file shows many dates have been missed before. Does anyone have a solution on this problem?

var startYear = '2010-01-01';
var endYear = '2011-01-01';

var lst = function(img){
  var bands = img.select('LST_Day_1km').multiply(0.02).clip(table);
  return bands

var modisLST = ee.ImageCollection("MODIS/006/MOD11A2")
.filterDate(startYear, endYear)

var time0 = modisLST.first().get('system:time_start');

var first = ee.List([ee.Image(0).set('system:time_start',time0).select([0],['LST_Day_1km'])]);

var accumulate = function(img, list){
  var previous = ee.Image(ee.List(list).get(-1));
  var added = img.add(previous)
  .set('system:time_start', img.get('system:time_start'));
  return ee.List(list).add(added);

var cummulative = ee.ImageCollection(ee.List(modisLST.iterate(accumulate, first)));


  ui.Chart.image.series(cummulative, table, ee.Reducer.first(), 1000, 'system:time_start')

As soon as you encounter a masked pixel when accumulating your value, the result will be masked.

  var added = img.add(previous)

To workaround that, you could unmask img to the value 0

  var added = img.unmask(0).add(previous)
