In order to evaluate the skin surface temperature (SSST) estimation accuracy with MODIS data, 84 of MODIS scenes together with the match-up data of NCEP/GDAS are used. Through regressive analysis, it is found that 0.305 to 0.417 K of RMSE can be achieved. Furthermore, it also is found that band 29 is effective for atmospheric correction (30.6 to 38.8\% of estimation accuracy improvement). If single coefficient set for the regressive equation is used for all the cases, SSST estimation accuracy is around 1.969 K so that the specific coefficient set for the five different cases have to be set.
