Combined ASTER and MODIS Emissivity database over Land (CAMEL) Uncertainty Monthly Global 0.05Deg V003

Metadata Updated: May 22, 2024

The NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) ( Combined Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Emissivity for Land (CAMEL) dataset provides monthly emissivity uncertainty at 0.05 degree (~5 kilometer) resolution (CAM5K30UC). CAM5K30UC is an estimation of total emissivity uncertainty comprising three independent components of variability: temporal, spatial, and algorithm. Each measure of uncertainty is provided for all 13 hinge points of emissivity and each latitude-longitude point. Additional details regarding the methodology are available in the User Guide and Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) ( Corresponding emissivity values can be found in the CAM5K30EM ( data product.

Provided in the CAM5K30UC product are layers for algorithm uncertainty, spatial uncertainty, temporal uncertainty, total uncertainty, latitude, longitude, spectral wavelength, CAMEL quality, and total uncertainty quality information.
