MASTER L2 Thermal Infrared (TIR) data products are available for ordering via this page. The L2 TIR products include the surface temperature and spectral emissivity for MASTER TIR bands 42-50.

** Please note that there are now two processing options.

Standard processing (recommended for all 2013 data): Currently this option applies to all 2013 data collected for the HyspIRI airborne campaign. The retrieval code has been updated to match the prototype HyspIRI TIR retrieval and atmospheric correction (see ATBD's at The L2 TIR products are generated using the ASTER Temperature Emissivity Separation (TES) algorithm combined with an updated Water Vapor Scaling (WVS) method which optimizes the atmospheric correction parameters automatically on a band-by-band, and pixel-by-pixel basis.

User Optimized:This option can be used for data (1999-2012) in the MASTER archive and uses the TES algorithm with standard atmospheric correction, i.e. no WVS. For this option scaling factors for O3, CO2, and H2O need to be supplied for the request.
