S-NPP Product Descriptions: VNP30_NRT

Last update: September 12, 2018

Data Set Short Name:
VNP30_NRT

Data Set Long Name:
VIIRS/NPP Ice Surface Temperature 6-Min L2 Swath 750m NRT

Platform:
Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP)

Instrument:
Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS)

Product Description:
This data set reports sea ice surface temperature (IST) derived from radiance data acquired by the Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS). Following the approach used by MODIS, the algorithm converts VIIRS calibrated radiances into brightness temperature and computes IST using a split-window technique.VIIRS flies on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite.
file_naming_convention = "VNP30_NRT.AYYYYDDD.HHMM.VVV.nc

  • AYYYYDDD = Acquisition Year and Day of Year
  • HHMM = Hour and minute of acquisition
  • VVV = Version number
