Announcement of support for VIIRS evaluation products

Dear Ocean Color Community:

The Ocean Biology Processing Group is pleased to announce enhanced support for ocean color data products derived from the VIIRS instrument on the NPP-Suomi platform for evaluation by the ocean color community. Following on the recent release of SeaDAS 7 with VIIRS processing and display support, the Ocean Color Web has now been upgraded to support the distribution of Level-1B through Level-3 VIIRS data products, including support for browse/search/download, bulk orders, subscriptions and Level-2 extraction services. The Level-1B, Level-2 and Level-3 products that we are now distributing were calibrated and processed using standard NASA methodologies and software as described here:

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please post to the Ocean Color Forum.

It is important to note that at the present time, these are experimental, unvalidated products and are being distributed for evaluation purposes and community feedback only. We anticipate that they may be significantly changed as our understanding of the instrument's on-orbit performance improves.

As we have with all the other missions that we support, we look forward to an active and open dialogue with you to try and make these new products as accurate and useful as possible for the ocean color community.

With our best regards,

The NASA Ocean Biology Processing Group
