VIIRS/Suomi-NPP Cloud Mask 6-Min Swath 750 m

The VIIRS Cloud Mask product is a Level-2 product generated at 750-m (at nadir) spatial resolutions. The algorithm employs a series of visible and infrared threshold and consistency tests to specify confidence that an unobstructed view of the Earth's surface has been observed. An indication of shadows affecting the scene is also provided. Radiometrically-accurate radiances are required, thus holes in the Cloud Mask will appear wherever the input radiances are incomplete or of poor quality assurance.
