Welcome to the Earthdata User Forum! Here, subject matter experts from several NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAAC) can discuss general questions, research needs and data applications. Users can query how to access, view and interpret the data.
All ASTER data, aside from the Precision Terrain Corrected (AST_L1T) and expedited data (AST_L1AE and AST_L1BE), require an order to be placed, as the product will be made on-demand. This includes radiance data (AST_09, AST_09T, AST_09XT, AST_L1B, and AST_14OTH), elevation data (AST14DEM, AST14DMO), emissivity data (AST_05), temperature data (AST_08), reflectance data (AST_07 and AST_07XT), and unprocessed data (AST_L1A). In addition, ASTER GDEM (ASTGTM) Version 3 data can be accessed using NASA's Earthdata Search.
