Description

This dataset includes Level 1B (L1B) and Level 2 (L2) data products from the MODIS/ASTER Airborne Simulator (MASTER) instrument. The raw data were collected during 9 flights aboard a NASA ER-2 aircraft over the Gulf of Mexico and portions of California, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida from 2010-07-31 to 2010-09-01. A primary purpose of this deployment was to collect imagery related to the Deepwater Horizon-BP Oil Spill that occurred in late April 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico. 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 the flight path, spectral band information, instrument configuration, ancillary notes, and summary information for each flight, and browse images derived from each L1B data file.
