VIIRS/JPSS1 Moderate Resolution 6-Min L1B Swath 750m NRT

Metadata Updated: November 5, 2019

The VIIRS Level 1 and Level 2 swath products are generated from the processing of 6 minutes of VIIRS data acquired during the JPSS1 satellite overpass. The VIIRS sensor has 16 moderate-resolution channels (M-bands) that have 16 detectors (16 rows of pixels per scan), that span the wavelengths from 0.412 micrometer to 12.1 micrometer. The VJ102MOD product is comprised of 16 bands that are sensitive to visible, near-infrared (NIR), and thermal wavelengths.

The spatial resolution of the instrument at viewing nadir is approximately 750 m for the Moderate-resolution and Day/Night Bands, and 375 m for the Imagery bands.
