Short Name:

VIIRS/NPP Ice Surface Temperature 6-Min L2 Swath 750m NRT


This data set reports sea ice surface temperature (IST) derived from radiance data acquired by the Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS). Following the approach used by MODIS, the algorithm converts VIIRS calibrated radiances into brightness temperature and computes IST using a split-window technique.VIIRS flies on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite.
