VIIRS/NOAA20 Cloud Properties Level 3 monthly, 1x1 degree grid

The VIIRS/NOAA20 Cloud Properties Level 3 monthly, 1x1 degree grid product, shortname CLDPROP_M3_VIIRS_NOAA20, is a continuity product designed to sustain the long-term records of both Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and VIIRS heritages. CLDPROP is used to represent Cloud Properties, which includes both Cloud-Optical Property (COP) and Cloud-Top Property parameters. This product ensures continuity of approach through a common algorithm that is applicable to both MODIS and VIIRS data by leveraging only those spectral channels that are common to both instruments.
