Combined ASTER and MODIS Emissivity database over Land (CAMEL) first Principal Components Analysis (PCA) coefficient data from the CAM5K30CF product over the globe from the month of January 2021.View full-size image
The NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Combined Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Emissivity for Land (CAMEL) dataset provides monthly coefficients at 0.05 degree (~5 kilometer) resolution (CAM5K30CF). The CAMEL Principal Components Analysis (PCA) input coefficients utilized in the CAMEL high spectral resolution (HSR) algorithm are provided in the CAM5K30CF data product and are congruent to the temporally equivalent CAM5K30EM emissivity data product. Additional details regarding the methodology are available in the User Guide and Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD).
Provided in the CAM5K30CF product are layers for PCA coefficients, number of PCA coefficients, laboratory version, snow fraction derived from MODIS Snow Cover data (MOD10), latitude, longitude, and the CAMEL quality information. PCA coefficients are dependent on the version of lab Principal Component (PC) data and the number of PCs used.
Version 3 includes new MODIS Terra and Aqua Land Surface Temperature and 3-Band Emissivity (MYD/MOD21) input data in the University of Wisconsin-Madison MODIS Baseline Fit (UWBF) emissivity database and the latest 6.1 version of MODIS Terra and Aqua Land Surface Temperature and Emissivity (MYD/MOD11) and MYD/MOD21 products with the most up-to-date calibration corrections. Additional information on the Version 3 updates is provided in Section 2 of the User Guide and ATBD.
