What ASTER data would be best to use for mineral research?

Some minerals have distinctive shortwave infrared spectral signatures while others have unique thermal infrared emissivity spectral signatures. Therefore, ASTER Level 2 data products (AST_05, AST_07, AST_07XT, AST_08, AST_09, and AST_09XT) are suitable for mineral research. However, it is highly recommended that users perform additional research on their own for their mineral of interest.
