ASTER Global Emissivity Dataset, 100 meter, HDF5 V003

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) Global Emissivity Dataset (GED) land surface temperature and emissivity (LST&E) data products are generated using the ASTER Temperature Emissivity Separation (TES) algorithm with a Water Vapor Scaling (WVS) atmospheric correction method using Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) (MOD07) ( atmospheric profiles and the MODerate spectral resolution TRANsmittance (MODTRAN 5.2 radiative transfer model). This dataset is computed from all clear-sky pixels of ASTER scenes acquired from 2000 through 2008. AG100 data are available globally at spatial resolution of 100 meters.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology, developed the ASTER GED product.
