Description The Atmosphere Science Investigator-led Processing System (A-SIPS) folks who process and produce our VIIRS Cloud Properties products just informed us that a recent change in an ancillary input from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction's (NCEP) Global Data Assimilation System/Global Forecast System (GDAS/GFS), is resulting in larger than expected differences in the cloud-top height. The production of CLDPROP_L2 for both SNPP VIIRS and Aqua MODIS has been paused until A-SIPS can resolve this issue. The last-produced CLDPROP_L2 dataset for both SNPP VIIRS and Aqua MODIS is 2021-080-1154. We will provide an update once this issue is resolved.
