Short Name:

VIIRS/NPP Surface Reflectance Daily L3 Global 0.05 Deg CMG V001

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) ( daily surface reflectance Climate Modeling Grid (VNP09CMG) Version 1 product provides an estimate of land surface reflectance from the Suomi National Polar-Orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) VIIRS sensor. Data are provided for three imagery bands (I1-I3) and nine moderate resolution bands (M1-M5, M7, M8, M10, M11) at 0.05 degree (~5,600 meter) resolution. The data are corrected for atmospheric conditions such as the effects of molecular gases, including ozone and water vapor, and for the effects of atmospheric aerosols. This product uses a weighted average of the best quality observation and is formatted as a CMG for use in climate simulation models. This product includes the twelve reflectance bands, five moderate resolution brightness temperature bands (M12-M16) and information layers representing relative azimuth angle, sensor zenith angle, solar zenith angle, reflectance band quality, time of day, and number mapping.
