VIIRS/JPSS1 Moderate Resolution 6-Min L1B Swath 750 m

The VIIRS/JPSS1 Moderate Resolution 6-Min L1B Swath 750 m, short-name VJ102MOD is VIIRS Level-1B calibrated radiances product that comprise sixteen moderate-resolution or M-bands, which have a spatial resolution of 750-meters at nadir. These M-bands comprise eleven reflective solar bands (RSB) and five thermal emissive bands (TEB). Each of the M-bands has 16 detectors in the along-track direction with 16 rows of pixels per scan that provide a 750-m resolution. Ranging in wavelengths from 0.402 µm to 12.49 µm, the M-bands are sensitive to visible, near-, shortwave-, mediumwave-, and longwave-infrared wavelengths. Derived from the NASA VIIRS L1A raw radiances, this product includes calibrated and geolocated radiance and reflectance data, quality flags, and granule- and collection-level metadata. In contrast to a MODIS L1B product, which temporally spans 5 minutes, the VIIRS L1B calibrated radiances product contains a nominal temporal duration of 6 minutes.
