Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi-NPP) CERES SIPS
Suomi-NPP CERES SIPS
NASA's Suomi-NPP Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) SIPS is responsible for processing, reprocessing, production and general assessment of the VIIRS CERES products. The science measurements may include products such as bidirectional scans, single scanner footprint Top Of Atmosphere (TOA)/surface fluxes and clouds, hourly gridded TOA/surface fluxes, clouds, and aerosols, and daily and monthly time-interpolated TOA. The Suomi-NPP CERES SIPS processes Level 0 data to Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 products. The Suomi-NPP CERES SIPS uses common software to produce data products for all five (FM1-FM5) CERES instruments. NASA's Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) provides ingest, distribution, and archive services for all CERES SIPS data interfaces.
NASA's Suomi-NPP Land SIPS supports the Suomi-NPP CERES group with processing and reprocessing of selected VIIRS higher-level data products for use in continuing the CERES climate data record and for use in near real-time processing.
