ASTER Expedited L1A Reconstructed Unprocessed Instrument Data V003

Version 003
  • Abstract
    The ASTER Expedited L1A Reconstructed Unprocessed Instrument Data is produced with the express purpose of providing the ASTER Science Team members and others, data of their particular interest in quick turn-around time from the moment the data are acquired. This is usually done to support on-going field calibration and validation efforts or to support emergency response to natural disasters when processed Level-1 data with minimum turn-around time would prove beneficial in initial damage or impact assessments. This data set is expected to be publicly available for a period of 30 days after which time it will be removed from the archive. This is done because the routinely processed (Production Data Set or PDS) version of this data set will be available from Japan in due course and available for search and order from the LP DAAC archives. ASTER Expedited Data Sets (EDS) serve the short-term requirements of a small group of scientists and fulfill immediate imagery needs during times of natural disasters. Users are advised that ASTER SWIR data acquired from late April 2008 to the present exhibit anomalous saturation of values and anomalous striping. This effect is also present for some prior acquisition periods. Please refer to the ASTER SWIR User Advisory Document (https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/sites/default/files/public/aster/docs/ASTER_SWIR_User_Advisory_July%2018_08.pdf) for more details. The general product description details as described for the ASTER Level 1A Data Set - Reconstructed, unprocessed Instrument Data apply to the expedited data set with a few notable exceptions. These include: • The Expedited Level-1A data set does not contain the VNIR 3B (aft-viewing) band • This data set does not have short-term calibration for the Thermal Infrared (TIR) sensor • The registration quality of this data set is likely to be lower, and also vary from scene to scene The Level-0 data downlink from the Tracking Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) at White Sands, NM is received at the EOS Data Operations System (EDOS) facility at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). Following some pre-processing, EDOS directly transmits that data (via the GSFC DAAC) to LP DAAC where the data are processed and the level-1 EDS is produced. The ASTER Level-1AE product contains reconstructed, unprocessed instrument digital data derived from the telemetry streams of the 3 telescopes at their respective ground resolutions: Visible Near Infrared (VNIR), 15 m, Shortwave Infrared (SWIR), 30 m, and Thermal Infrared (TIR), 90 m. There is no browse product provided for the expedited L1A data set.
