VIIRS Climate Raw Data Record (C-RDR) from Suomi NPP, Version 1

Metadata Updated: March 11, 2021

The Suomi NPP Climate Raw Data Record (C-RDR) developed at the NOAA NCDC is an intermediate product processing level (NOAA Level 1b) between a Raw Data Record (RDR) and a Sensor Data Record (SDR). The C-RDR is intended to simplify access to the raw data for the purpose of reprocessing using calibration and geolocation methods. The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) C-RDR has raw VIIRS measurements collected into time series variables, accompanied by the coefficients and tables needed to convert them to science units and calibrate them. Where applicable, metadata in this file follows the Climate and Forecast (CF) Conventions and Attribute Convention for Dataset Discovery (ACDD). Metadata attributes from the native Suomi NPP RDR and SDR file types are also included. These files have been compared with those generated using JPSS Application Development Library (ADL) applications. Product documentation and software are available for the dataset.
