Visible/Infrared Imager Radiometer SuiteEntry ID: gov.noaa.class.NPP_VIIRS
Abstract: ABSTRACT: The Visible/Infrared Imager/Radiometer Suite collects visible/infrared imagery and radiometric data. Data types include atmospheric, clouds, earth radiation budget, clear-air land/water surfaces, sea surface temperature, ocean color, and low light visible imagery. VIIRS contributes to 23 Environmental Data Records (EDRs) and is the primary instrument for 18 EDRs.
CURRENTNESS REFERENCE: ... ground condition
Fees: Electronic download (FTP) of the data is free. There is a fee for copies of data on physical media. Optical disks are $25.00 per unit and magnetic tape is $100 per unit. Price does not include additional service and handling costs.
Purpose: PURPOSE: VIIRS will have multichannel imaging capabilities to support the acquisition of high resolution atmospheric imagery and generation of a variety of applied products including: visible and infrared imaging of hurricanes and detection of fires, smoke, and atmospheric aerosols.
