NOAA SNPP and NOAA-20 VIIRS Operational Ocean Color (OC) Environmental Data Records (EDR) Level-2 Products, 2018 - present

browse graphicPreview graphic
This dataset contains Ocean Color (OC) Environmental Data Records (EDR) Level-2 products from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on board the Suomi-National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) and Joint Polar Satellite System-1 (JPSS1) satellites. The Level-2 OC EDR are produced by NESDIS Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO) and Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) OC team. The operational products from SNPP-VIIRS include Chl-a, Rrs, Kd, Chl-a fronts, the diffuse attenuation coefficient for photosynthetically active radiation (KdPAR), and true color.
