VIIRS/NPP Imagery Resolution 6-Min L1B Swath 375m

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

VIIRS/NPP Imagery Resolution 6-Min L1B Swath 375m (VNP02IMG).

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Level 1 and Level 2 swath products are generated from the processing of 6 minutes of VIIRS data acquired during the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SUOMI-NPP) satellite overpass. The VIIRS sensor has 5 high-resolution imagery channels (I-bands) that have 32 detectors (32 rows of pixels per scan), with twice the resolution of the M-bands and the DNB, that span the wavelengths from 0.640 micron to 11.45 microns. The VNP02IMG product is comprised of 5 bands that are sensitive to visible, near-infrared (NIR), and thermal wavelengths.

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

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

file_naming_convention:

VNP02IMG.AYYYYDDD.HHMM.CCC.YYYYDDDHHMMSS.nc

AYYYYDDD = Acquisition Year and Day of Year

HHMM = Acquisition Hour and Minute

CCC = Collection number

YYYYDDDHHMMSS = Production Date and Time

nc = NetCDF4
