CAM5K30UC

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

The NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) (https://earthdata.nasa.gov/community/community-data-system-programs/measures-projects) Combined ASTER and 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 3 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) (https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/documents/4/cam5k30_User_Guide_ATBD_V1.pdf). 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.
