Short Name:

ASTER Global Emissivity Dataset, 1 kilometer, HDF5 V003

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. AG1KM data are available globally at spatial resolution of 1 kilometer. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology, developed the ASTER GED product.
