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

The VIIRS/NPP Imagery Resolution 6-Min L1B Swath 375m product is generated from the processing of 6 minutes of the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) data acquired during the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-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 shortname for this product is VNP02IMG. This 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.
