ASTER Global Emissivity Data Set Monthly 0.05 degree V041 - AG5KMMOH

Metadata Updated: June 8, 2018

Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) Global Emissivity Dataset (GED) is a collection of monthly files (see known issues for gaps) for each year of global emissivity. The ASTER GED data products are generated for 2000 - 2015 using the ASTER Temperature Emissivity Separation (TES) algorithm atmospheric correction method. This algorithm method uses Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Atmospheric Profiles product MOD07 and the MODTRAN 5.2 radiative transfer model along with the snow cover data from the standard monthly MODIS/Terra snow cover monthly global 0.05 degree product MOD10CM] (http://nsidc.org/data/docs/daac/modis_v5/mod10cm_modis_terra_snow_monthly_global_0.05deg_cmg.gd.html), and vegetation information from the MODIS monthly gridded NDVI product MOD13C2. ASTER GED Monthly V041 data products are offered in both Hierarchical Data Format 5 (.HDF5) formats. The ASTER GED Monthly V041 files are scheduled to be delivered around the first quarter of the next Calendar year (January - March). For example, 2015 monthly files were made available during the first quarter of Calendar year 2016. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology, developed the ASTER GED product. Additional ASTER GED product information is available at https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/dataset_discovery/community/community_products_table. Product tiles are available in HDF5 formats and may be downloaded via HTTP by visiting the following data clients: NASA Reverb (http://reverb.echo.nasa.gov), LP DAAC Data Pool (http://e4ftl01.cr.usgs.gov/ASTT/), Earthdata Search Client (https://search.earthdata.nasa.gov/) or EarthExplorer (http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov).
