VIIRS - Level-2

Overview

The VIIRS+CrIS Data Fusion Level-2 product is designed to facilitate improved continuity by generating narrowband infrared channels that are responsive to atmospheric absorption, which the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument lacks. This fusion-based product between an imager (VIIRS) and a sounder instrument (Cross-track Infrared Sounder) produces M-band (750 m spatial resolution) earth-view radiances based on the Aqua Moderate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer’s (MODIS) spectral response functions. This Level-2 product exists for both the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership- and Joint Polar Satellite System-1-derived missions.
