Combined ASTER and MODIS Emissivity database over Land (CAMEL) Coefficient Monthly Global 0.05Deg V001

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

The NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Combined ASTER and MODIS Emissivity database over Land (CAMEL) dataset provides monthly coefficients at 0.05 degree (~5 kilometer) resolution (CAM5K30CF). The CAMEL Principal Components Analysis (PCA) input coefficients utilized in the CAMEL HSR algorithm are provided in the CAM5K30CF data product and are congruent to the temporally equivalent CAM5K30EM emissivity data product. Additional details regarding the methodology are available in the User Guide (

Provided in the CAM5K30CF product are layers for PCA coefficients, number of PCA coefficients, laboratory version, snow fraction derived from MODIS Snow Cover data (MOD10), latitude, longitude, and the CAMEL quality information. PCA coefficients are dependent on the version of lab PC data and number of PCs used.
