VIIRS/NPP Moderate Resolution 6-Min L1B Swath 750m

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

VIIRS/NPP Moderate Resolution 6-Min L1B Swath 750m (VNP02MOD).

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 16 moderate-resolution channels (M-bands) that have 16 detectors (16 rows of pixels per scan), that span the wavelengths from 0.412 micron to 12.1 microns. The VNP02MOD 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 375m for the Imagery bands.
