Data Description

    JPSS VIIRS Products (Granule) (JPSS_GRAN) - Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) sensor data records and intermediate products from the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) have been used to generate these VIIRS Level 2 granule products. The products were developed by the NOAA/NESDIS Center for Satellite Application and Research (STAR) and were produced within a near real-time environment at the NOAA/NESDIS Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO). The archived products are distributed in the netCDF-4 file format with metadata attributes included. Please expand "Details - Metadata, Documentation" section below for more details. Individual product (Datatype) description, documentation, and possible bulk access options are available under the "Product Details" link.

    (Posted 3/13/2018) Please note: Beginning on April 11, 2018 many of the datatypes below will begin flowing into CLASS as roughly 10 minute TAR files to allow for easier access to the data since the order limits are restricted by file counts. Each TAR file will contain several granules. Please plan accordingly.

    (Posted 12/06/2017) Daily tar files of the products for the most recent 90 days are available via anonymous FTP download at
