Metadata Updated: February 28, 2024

The second of the two VIIRS DNB-based datasets is a daily moonlight- and atmosphere-corrected Nighttime Lights (NTL) product called VIIRS/NPP Gap-Filled Lunar BRDF-Adjusted Nighttime Lights Daily L3 Global 500m Linear Lat Lon Grid. Known by its short-name, VNP46A2, this product contains seven Science Data Sets (SDS) that include DNB BRDF-Corrected NTL, Gap-Filled DNB BRDF-Corrected NTL, DNB Lunar Irradiance, Latest High-Quality Retrieval, Mandatory Quality Flag, Cloud Mask Quality Flag, and Snow Flag. VNP46A2 products are provided in standard Hierarchical Data Format–Earth Observing System (HDF-EOS5) format.
