NOAA JPSS Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Sensor Data Record (SDR) from IDPS

Sensor Data Records (SDRs), or Level 1b data, from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) are the calibrated and geolocated radiance and reflectance data produced from the Raw Data Records. There are 22 VIIRS SDRs: 16 moderate-resolution, narrow-spectral-band products at 750 meter resolution, five imaging-resolution, narrow-spectral-band products at 375 meter resolution and one Day-Night Band imaging broadband product at 750 meter resolution. These SDRs are used as input to produce several Environmental Data Records (EDR) products. A SDR contains the following elements: calibrated sensor radiometric data, geolocation data, quality flags and metadata at both the granule and aggregation levels. By default, VIIRS SDR data obtained from the NOAA Comprehensive Large Array-Data Stewardship System (CLASS) are distributed as aggregated files of four 86-second granules in Hierarchical Data Format v.5 (HDF5) file format with metadata attributes included.
