Abstract: Currently, the global weather condition has been changing continuously, especially the increased global temperature which could pose more and more risks of extreme weather such as intense heat wave, drought, and flood. The primary objective of this study was to analyze the spatial-temporal change of land surface temperature using data from Terra/Modis Satellite, together with the mathematical calculation method during 4 periods of time in the study area of Buriram Province. It was found from the study into land surface temperature as analyzed from the satellite’s date in 2004, 2008, 2013, and 2018 that the annual average land surface temperature was at 32.90 Degree Celsius, 30.33 Degree Celsius, 31.26 Degree Celsius and 33.20 Degree Celsius, respectively. When such land surface temperature result was brought to find statistical relationship with the average annual temperature as measured from the ground-based station by Thai Meteorological Department, it was found that each of 4 periods of time as mentioned was highly related. This study result revealed that the analysis of land surface temperature change using data from Terra/Modis Satellite can be applied to analyze, monitoring, and follow up the spatial-temporal change of land surface temperature.
