Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi-NPP) Atmosphere SIPS
Suomi-NPP Atmosphere SIPS
NASA's Suomi-NPP Atmosphere SIPS is responsible for processing, reprocessing, production and general assessments of Suomi-NPP VIIRS Atmosphere Products. The SIPS will process Level 0 data to Level 2, and global gridded Level 3 Atmosphere Products using the scientific algorithm software from the Suomi-NPP Atmosphere Discipline Group. Suomi-NPP Atmosphere SIPS delivers all data products along with scientific algorithm software, associated metadata, and documentation to NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Level 1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System (LAADS) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) via NASA's Suomi-NPP Land SIPS. Suomi-NPP Atmosphere SIPS also acquires near real-time algorithms for selected products and processes and delivers these products, within three hours, for distribution through NASA's Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) system.
