The initial release is scheduled for the middle of June 2023 and will begin with Land Surface Reflectance data products (VNP09s/VJ109s). Other product suites will follow at regular intervals in the weeks and months after. These will include Land Surface Temperature and Emissivity (VNP21s/VJ121s), Vegetation Indices (VNP13s/VJ113s), tiled Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) and Albedo (VNP43IA/MAs & VJ143IA/MAs), Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Fraction of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR) (VNP15A2H/VJ115A2H) and Thermal Anomalies and Fire (VNP14s/VJ114s) products. The VIIRS Earth Science Data Records for Version 2 will include additional data products to provide continuity with MODIS land science products. Further announcements will be posted as more information becomes available.
Details on product improvements for Version 2 will be provided on the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) landing page for each product. Suomi NPP VIIRS Version 1 data products will remain available for distribution and will continue with forward processing during the transition.
VIIRS Version 2 data products will be hosted on NASA’s Earthdata Cloud and will be available for download through NASA’s Earthdata Search.
