Ambient air temperature is main variable in climatological and hydrological analysis, however limited number of meteorological stations in Indonesia was becoming a problem to provide air temperature data for large areas. The objective of this study is to generate air temparature using relationship of land surface temperature and vegetation index. A total of 6 climatological station and 84 MODIS Images for three years (2015 to 2017) were used for the analysis. Research methods include: image

Results show that the accuracy of MODIS Surface Reflectance product to generate ambient air temperature in East Java at any periods is 86,37%. So MODIS Surface Reflectance product can be used as alternative solution to generate ambient air temperature.
