VIIRSN Level-3 Standard Mapped Image (SMI), Global, 4km, Diffuse Attenuation Coefficient K490, Daily composite data from the Visible and Infrared Imager/Radiometer Suite (VIIRS). VIIRS is a multi-disciplinary instrument that flies on the Suomi-NPP (National Polar-orbiting Partnership) satellite. Suomi-NPP is the initial spacecraft in the JPSS (Joint Polar Satellite Systems) series of spacecraft. JPSS is our Nation's next generation polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system. JPSS is a collaborative program between NOAA and its acquisition agent NASA. VIIRS is the successor to MODIS for Earth science data product generation. THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL PRODUCT: intended strictly for scientific evaluation by professional marine scientists.
