Land surface temperature (LST) is an important parameter in the climate system, impacting vegetation development, snow cover, runoff, and human livelihoods. Knowledge of LST dynamics can furthermore be used as an indicator for climate variability and change. LST is regularly measured from satellite sensors on a broad spatial scale and with a high temporal resolution. In this research, MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) sensor data are used to assess the spatial and temporal patterns of LST in the Mekong Basin (MB) including its temporal variability. The dataset contains 13 years of MODIS LST data, a unique measurement time series in terms of resolution, accuracy, and homogeneity. In the analysis a temporal granularity of 8-days was used. The MB was divided into six physiographically homogenous regions. The height and magnitude of annual LST curves differ between the regions and prove to be strongly dependent on the topography. Large intra-annual magnitudes and low temperatures (daytime/nighttime annual regional means are 14 _C/
