ASTER L1T Radiance (ASTER/AST_L1T_003)

Version V003

The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER)
is a multispectral imager that was launched on board NASA’s Terra spacecraft
in December, 1999. ASTER can collect data in 14 spectral bands from the
visible to the thermal infrared. Each scene covers an area of 60 x 60 km.
These scenes, produced by the USGS, contain calibrated at-sensor radiance,
ortho-rectified and terrain corrected.

Not all 14 bands were collected in each scene. An asset property named
ORIGINAL_BANDS_PRESENT contains the list of bands that are present in each

To convert from Digital Numbers (DN) to radiance at the sensor, the unit
conversion coefficients are available in the metadata. See
ASTER L1T Product Users’ Guide
and ASTER L1T Product Specification
for more information.
