Forward Processing for VIIRS Version 1 Ends June 30, 2024

Apr 01, 2024

Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Version 1 (Collection 1) land data products from the NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) will cease forward processing on June 30, 2024. VIIRS Version 1 data products will remain available for distribution, but users are encouraged to transition to VIIRS Version 2. The VIIRS Earth Science Data Records for Version 2 offer new data products from both the Suomi NPP and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-20 (NOAA-20) satellites to provide continuity with MODIS land science products.

Suomi NPP VIIRS Version 1 data products will remain accessible for download as additional Version 2 data products are released. The complete list of VIIRS Version 2 datasets are listed in the VIIRS Products Table.
