VIIRS snow cover swath data now available

Version 1 of the VIIRS/NPP Snow Cover 6-Min Swath 375m (VNP10) data set is now available at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). The VIIRS snow cover algorithm has been specifically designed to be compatible with MODIS Terra and Aqua Version 6 snow cover data sets, to ensure continuity between the products and facilitate a climate-data record from the three sensors.

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite, or VIIRS, flies on board the NASA Suomi-National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite and acquires visible and infrared imagery and radiometric measurements of the land, atmosphere, cryosphere, and oceans.
