The ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS) mission measures the temperature of plants to better understand how much water plants need and how they respond to stress. ECOSTRESS is attached to the International Space Station (ISS) and collects data over the conterminous United States (CONUS) as well as key biomes and agricultural zones around the world and selected FLUXNET validation sites. A map of the acquisition coverage can be found on the ECOSTRESS website.
The ECO1BATT Version 1 data product provides both corrected and uncorrected attitude quaternions and spacecraft ephemeris data obtained from the ISS. The data are provided in 1 second intervals by the ISS, and each product file contains vectors from the duration of the orbit. The time elements are copied from the ISS raw data.
The ECO1BATT Version 1 data product contains layers of corrected and uncorrected attitude quaternions, spacecraft ephemeris data including Earth-centered inertial (ECI) position and velocity, and associated time elements.

Quality information for the ECO1BATT Version 1 data product is not provided.
Cannot perform spatial query on ECO1BATT in NASA Earthdata Search: ECO1BATT does not contain spatial attributes, so granules cannot be searched by geographic location. Users should search for ECO1BATT data products by orbit number instead.
Data acquisition gap: ECOSTRESS was launched on June 29, 2018 and moved to autonomous science operations on August 20, 2018 following a successful in-orbit checkout period. On September 29, 2018, ECOSTRESS experienced an anomaly with its primary mass storage unit (MSU). ECOSTRESS has a primary and secondary MSU (A and B). On December 5, 2018, the instrument was switched to the secondary MSU and science operations resumed. On March 14, 2019, the secondary MSU experienced a similar anomaly temporarily halting science acquisitions. On May 15, 2019, a new data acquisition approach was implemented and science acquisitions resumed. To optimize the new acquisition approach TIR bands 2, 4 and 5 are being downloaded. The data products are as previously, except the bands not downloaded contain fill values (L1 radiance and L2 emissivity).
Data acquisition gap: From February 8 to February 16, 2020 an ECOSTRESS instrument issue resulted in a data anomaly that created striping in band 4 (10.5 micron). This anomaly has affected ECOSTRESS Level 1B and Level 2 datasets, which include the attitude, geolocation, radiance, cloud mask, land surface temperature and emissivity data products. These data products have been removed from data access and are no longer available. Masked data is expected to be available by March 16th, 2020 for all product levels. Data acquired following the anomaly has not been affected.
