  • NASA's Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) released the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Surface Reflectance (VNP09) Version 1 product suite on March 24, 2017. This product suite includes 500 meter, 1 kilometer, and 0.05 degree products at daily and 8-day temporal resolutions. The VNP09 collection historical processing is still ongoing and will eventually comprise all of the data from January 2012 to the present. In addition to the publicly available historical data, forward processing, ingest, and archive services for the recent data began on March 1, 2017. VIIRS global change observation products are being generated in a Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)-like format using modified MODIS algorithms.
