Description

This dataset includes Level 1B (L1B) and Level 2 (L2) data products from the MODIS/ASTER Airborne Simulator (MASTER) instrument. The spectral data were collected during seven flights aboard a NASA ER-2 aircraft over California, Nevada, Central America, and eastern Pacific Ocean from 2007-07-29 to 2007-08-18. This deployment supported the Tropical Composition, Cloud and Climate Coupling Campaign (TC4), which investigated the atmospheric structure, properties, and processes in the Eastern Pacific Tropics. Data products include L1B georeferenced multispectral imagery of calibrated radiance in 50 bands covering wavelengths of 0.460 to 12.879 micrometers at approximately 50-meter spatial resolution. Derived L2 data products are emissivity in 5 bands in thermal infrared range (8.58 to 12.13 micrometers) and land surface temperature. The L1B file format is HDF-4, and L2 products are provided in ENVI and KMZ formats. In addition, the dataset includes flight paths, spectral band information, instrument configuration, ancillary notes, and summary information for each flight, and browse images derived from each L1B data file.
