ECOSTRESS Geolocation Daily L1B Global 70m V001

Metadata Updated: November 5, 2019

The ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS) mission measures the temperature of plants to better understand how much water plants need and how they respond to stress. ECOSTRESS is attached to the International Space Station (ISS) and collects data over the conterminous United States (CONUS) as well as key biomes and agricultural zones around the world and selected FLUXNET ( validation sites. A map of the acquisition coverage can be found on the ECOSTRESS website (

The ECO1BGEO Version 1 data product provides the geolocation information for the radiance values retrieved in the ECO1BRAD Version 1 data product ( The ECO1BGEO data product should be used to georeference the ECO1BRAD, ECO2CLD, ECO2LSTE, ECO3ANCQA, ECO3ETPTJPL, ECO4ESIPTJPL, ECO4WUE data products. The geolocation processing corrects the ISS-reported ephemeris and attitude data by image matching with a global ortho-base derived from Landsat data, and then assigns latitude and longitude values to each of the Level 1 radiance pixels. When image matching is successful, the data are geolocated to better than 50 meter (m) accuracy. The ECO1BGEO data product is provided as swath data.

The ECO1BGEO data product contains data layers for latitude and longitude values, solar and view geometry information, surface height, and the fraction of pixel on land versus water.

Data acquisition gaps: ECOSTRESS was launched on June 29, 2018 and moved to autonomous science operations on August 20, 2018 following a successful in-orbit checkout period. On September 29, 2018, ECOSTRESS experienced an anomaly with its primary mass storage unit (MSU). ECOSTRESS has a primary and secondary MSU (A and B). On December 5, 2018, the instrument was switched to the secondary MSU and science operations resumed. On March 14, 2019, the secondary MSU experienced a similar anomaly temporarily halting science acquisitions. On May 15, 2019, a new data acquisition approach was implemented and science acquisitions resumed. To optimize the new acquisition approach TIR bands 2, 4 and 5 are being downloaded. The data products are as previously, except the bands not downloaded contain fill values (L1 radiance and L2 emissivity).
