Short Name:

ASTER L2 Surface Radiance VNIR and SWIR V003

The ASTER Surface Radiance VNIR and SWIR (AST_09) is a multi-file product that contains atmospherically corrected data for both the Visible and Near Infrared (VNIR) and Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) sensors. Each product delivery includes two Hierarchical Data Format - Earth Observing System (HDF-EOS) files: one for the VNIR, and the other for the SWIR. They are distinguished from one another by a one-second difference in the production time that appears as part of the file name. The more obvious distinguishing feature is the file size; the VNIR file is always the larger of the two. Both the VNIR and SWIR data are atmospherically corrected and are generated using the bands of the corresponding (ASTER Level 1B) ( image.
