We have resumed making a few VIIRS Near Real Time products available as of today. (NPP_09GA_NRT, NPP_SRFLMIP_NRT, NPP_SRFLIIP_NRT, VNP14IMG_NRT, on

The processing of the VIIRS Level 2 HDF files on NRT3 has been changed to use time based, rather than session-based Production Data Set (PDS) files. The result will be an increased latency from approx 3 hours to approx 8 hours. This is due an error that was detected in the underlying Level 0 data. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The VIIRS 375 m data distributed through FIRMS will not be affected but VIIRS Corrected Reflectance imagery in Worldview and GIBS will be. If you have any questions please send them to with VIIRS NRT in the subject line.
