VIIRS/NPP Moderate Resolution Bands L1B 6-Min Swath 750m NRTEntry ID: VNP02MOD_NRT_1
The VIIRS Level 1 and Level 2 swath products are generated from the processing of 6 minutes of VIIRS data acquired during the S-NPP satellite overpass. The VIIRS sensor has 16 moderate-resolution channels (M-bands) that have 16 detectors (16 rows of pixels per scan), that span the wavelengths from 0.412 µm to 12.1 µm. The VNP02MOD product is comprised of 16 bands that are sensitive to ... visible, near-infrared (NIR), and thermal wavelengths.
The spatial resolution of the instrument at viewing nadir is approximately 750 m for the Moderate-resolution and Day/Night Bands, and 375m for the Imagery bands.

Quality This is a near real-time (NRT) product that has undergone expedited processing to make it available within 3 hours of observation time to meet the needs of the NRT applications community. NRT data are subject to geolocation errors or reprocessing. Usually the geolocationalerrors are minimal (less than 100 meters), however, there are situations, particularly before and after spacecraft maneuvers and during space weather events, when the difference can increase up to several kilometers.
