Paper Abstract

The advanced spaceborne thermal emission and reflection radiometer (ASTER), a multi- spectral imaging radiometer with 14 spectral bands, is a research facility instrument that will be launched in 1998 on NASA's EOS-AM1 platform. Characteristics of the ASTER data can be summarized as (1) wide spectral coverage from the visible to thermal infrared regions, (2) multispectral thermal infrared data with high spectral and spatial resolution and (3) stereoscopic capability in the along track direction. ASTER is currently being designed to meet the requirements given by the ASTER science team.
