I am looking for a free Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) image that will let me to perform NDVI for the pilot crop health/soil moisture that can go as far back ten years or so.

It needs to have:

  • 15 m (meters)
  • temporal
  • Ten years back or so
  • Perform NDVI

This will be in a small area somewhere near Albuquerque, NM.

You can easily download freely available ASTER Level 1B (at-sensor calbirated radiances) from the USGS EarthExplorer site. A simple quick search for a polygon roughly covering New Mexico returns > 100 results, but individual scenes are much smaller, so for a full cover of the state you'd have to stitch them together. USGS Glovis should have the same data, though an older interface.

The NASA Reverb site (http://reverb.echo.nasa.gov/reverb/#utf8=✓&spatial_map=satellite&spatial_type=rectangle) lists ASTER data for download.

You can take a look there for your specific study site and time.
