VIIRS Activities in Support of theNOAA Satellite Proving Ground

Sixth Meeting of the Science Advisory Committee

28 February - 1 March, 2012

National Space Science and Technology Center, Huntsville, AL

transitioning unique NASA data and research technologies to operations


Relevance to SPoRT

Suomi NPP

  • Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite

  • Joint NASA/NOAA instrument

  • MODIS & AVHRR/OLS heritage

    • High-resolution; better near edge-of-swath

      • 370 m res. for Imaging bands (MODIS 250 m Visible)

      • 740 m res. for Moderate bands (MODIS 500/1000 m IR)


VIIRS Improved Scan Geometry

MODIS (1 km)

VIIRS (Simulated) (740 m)

      • 740 m res. for Moderate bands (MODIS 500/1000 m IR)

    • Superior spatially

      • No gaps, even at equator

      • Swath width: 3000km vs 2330km


VIIRS Swath Width

      • Swath width: 3000km vs 2330km

    • Inferior spectrally

      • 22 vs 36 bands

      • Some improved areas


VIIRS vs MODIS channels

H2O

DNB

O3

CO2


Accomplishments since SAC 2009

Suomi NPP launched 28 October 2011

VIIRS commissioning process ongoing

Retrieved proxy data from NOAA CasaNOSA site

Retrieving data from Atmospheric PEATE at UW/SSEC

Developed ability to ingest VIIRS in McIDAS-X and display in AWIPS & AWIPS II


VIIRS IR (McIDAS-X)

SVM15


VIIRS IR (AWIPS I)

VIIRS DNB (McIDAS-X)


Future Work

  • Demonstrate usefulness of VIIRS products

    • Focus on High-Latitude issues over Alaska Region

      • Include testbed cases in Southern Region

    • Resolution improvement over MODIS (full scan)

      • Add VIIRS to CONUS Hybrid

      • Create OCONUS Hybrids over AK and Pac

    • Low light channel (Day-Night-Band)

      • Clouds, Fog

      • RGBs
