ASTER Global Emissivity Dataset, Monthly, 0.05 deg, HDF5 V041

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

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 through 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 MODerate spectral resolution TRANsmittance (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) (, and vegetation information from the MODIS monthly gridded NDVI product (MOD13C2) ( ASTER GED Monthly V041 data products are offered in Hierarchical Data Format 5 (HDF5).

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