ASTER Expedited L1B Registered Radiance at the Sensor V003

Metadata Updated: December 1, 2022

The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) Expedited Level 1B Registered Radiance at the Sensor data product is radiometrically calibrated and geometrically co-registered. Application of intra-telescope and inter-telescope registration corrections for all bands are relative to the reference band for each telescope: Visible and Near Infrared (VNIR) Band 2, Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Band 6, and Thermal Infrared (TIR) Band 11. The Expedited Level 1B data product is similar to the (AST_L1B) ( with a few notable exceptions. These include: * The AST_L1BE is available for download within 48 hours of acquisition in support of field calibration and validation efforts, in addition to emergency response for natural disasters where the quick turn-around time from acquisition to availability would prove beneficial in initial damage or impact assessments. * The registration quality of the AST_L1BE is likely to be lower than the AST_L1B, and may vary from scene to scene. * The AST_L1BE dataset does not contain the VNIR 3B (aft-viewing) Band. * This dataset does not have short-term calibration for the Thermal Infrared (TIR) sensor.
