The LAADS DAAC is pleased to announce that it has released both the monthly and yearly versions of the SNPP VIIRS Lunar Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF)-adjusted Nighttime Lights (NTL) product. These composite products are generated from the daily atmospherically and lunar-BRDF-corrected NTL radiance to remove extraneous artifacts and biases, including the influence of viewing angular effects on artificial lights. Both collections start from January 1, 2012.
Please consult the individual product links for additional information. If you have any questions or concerns, contact the LAADS User Services .
