nLw486, NOAA VIIRS, Science Quality, Global, Level 3, 2012-present, Monthly

Level-3 Standard Mapped Image (SMI), Global, 4km, nLw486, Monthly composite data from the Visible and Infrared Imager/Radiometer Suite (VIIRS). These are science quality data with a 15-day latency. The data, processed by the NOAA/STAR Ocean Color Team, are produced from MSL12 v1.2 using OC-SDR v04 and were release by CoastWatch as of 2017-08-07. VIIRS is a multi-disciplinary instrument that flies on the Suomi-NPP (National Polar-orbiting Partnership) satellite and is the successor to MODIS. Suomi-NPP is the initial spacecraft in the JPSS (Joint Polar Satellite Systems) series of spacecraft. JPSS is our Nation's next generation polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system. JPSS is a collaborative program between NOAA and its acquisition agent NASA.
