The GOES-R Peer Stakeholder - Dataype SEIS-L1b-MPSH Data are publicly available on December 16, 2017. Data from December 16, 2017 to the present are at "provisional validation" level. Please see Readme for details. Other SEISS datatypes will be available after the corresponding sensors reach Provisional maturity. While the GOES-16 L1b SEIS-L1b-MPSH data have reached provisional validation, please keep in mind that these products have not been fully validated.
The newer JPSS products from the NOAA Enterprise System are now grouped with the rest of the JPSS data families. Several of the legacy products have been replaced by newer, higher quality products in the new JPSS data families. These products are in C-F compliant netCDF format. Below is a list of the new families now under JPSS.
JPSS Sounder Products (JPSS_SND) - formerly S-NPP NDE Granule Data (NDE_L2)
JPSS VIIRS Products (Granule)(JPSS_GRAN) - NEW!
JPSS VIIRS Products (Non-Granule)(JPSS_NGRN) - formerly S-NPP NDE Daily (NDE_DAILY)
JPSS Tropical Cyclone Products (JPSS_TC) - formerly S-NPP NDE Microwave Tropical Cyclone (NDE_TC)
JPSS Ozone Products (JPSS_OZONE) - created earlier this year
Users are encouraged to check the product and algorithm maturity levels throughout the history of the product at the STAR JPSS Algorithm Maturity Matrix website at https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/jpss/AlgorithmMaturity.php.
Many of these products are online in daily TAR files for the most recent 90 days at ftp://ftp-npp.bou.class.noaa.gov.
For documents and other information please go to the STAR Science Documents website at https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/jpss/Docs.php which includes JPSS Algorithm Theoretical Basis Documents (ATBD), Users Guides, Cal/Val plans, and much more.

The GOES-R Peer Stakeholder - Product Validation Review for ABI L1b and CMI Provisional Maturity was held on June 1, 2017. As a result of this review, NOAA has confirmed that the ABI L1b and CMI data are at Provisional Validation Maturity as of June 1, 2017 (see Readme for details). This means that these products can be publicly accessed within the CLASS data family, GOES-R Series ABI Products (GRABIPRD).
While the GOES-16 ABI L1b and CMI data have reached provisional validation, please keep in mind that since GOES-16 satellite has not been declared operational, its data are still considered preliminary and undergoing testing.
Update #1: This issue has been fixed with the IDPS (Build Mx2.0.1). Transition to Operations (TTO) occurred on April 10, 2017.
Topic: S-NPP Data Products Incorrect over the Southern Hemisphere
Details/Specifics of Change: IDPS VIIRS Moderate products and NDE downstream NUCAPS, VPW, VHP products are impacted due to incorrect S-NPP VIIRS Cloud Mask over the Southern Hemisphere.

The following NESDIS legacy SST products (also known as MUT SST products) were produced from a software application developed in 1978. Science maintenance for these products has ceased. These products, with the exception of some of the aerosol products, have corresponding higher quality replacement products available from NESDIS.
The products discontinued by NESDIS and their replacement (alternative) products are listed below:
