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

Version 001
  • Abstract
    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 emissivity at 0.05 degree (~5 kilometer) resolution (CAM5K30EM). The CAM5K30EM data product was created by combining the University of Wisconsin-Madison MODIS Baseline Fit database (UWBF) and the ASTER Global Emissivity Dataset (GED). The two databases have been integrated to capitalize on the unique strengths of each product's characteristics. The integration steps include: adjustment of ASTER GED Version 3 emissivities for vegetation and snow cover variations to produce ASTER GED Version 4, aggregation of ASTER GED Version 4 emissivities from 100 meter resolution to 5 kilometer resolution, merging of the 5 ASTER spectral emissivities with the 5 kilometer resolution, 10 hinge points UWBF emissivity to 13 hinge points to create CAMEL, and extension of the hinge points to high spectral resolution (HSR) utilizing the Principal Component (PC) regression method. Additional details regarding the methodology are available in the User Guide (https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/sites/default/files/public/product_documentation/cam5k30_v1_user_guide.pdf). Provided in the CAM5K30EM product are layers for the CAMEL emissivity, ASTER Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), snow fraction derived from MODIS (MOD10), latitude, longitude, CAMEL quality, ASTER quality, and Best Fit Emissivity (BFE) quality information.
