The University of Wisconsin-Madison SSEC is pleased to announce a new release of the Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) VIIRS Environmental Data Record (EDR) science software in support of the NOAA-20 and S-NPP direct broadcast community.
The JPSS program worked with the CSPP team to integrate the JPSS processing framework enterprise algorithms into stand alone executables, which can then be implemented through simple CSPP bash shell and python scripts. The output files created by this software are identical in naming, format (NetCDF), and structure to the corresponding NPP Data Exploitation system (NDE) files. This CSPP release (VIIRS_ASCI Version 1.1) has been adapted and tested for operation in a real-time direct broadcast environment. A separate test data package can be downloaded for verifying a successful installation.
What is New in CSPP ASCI EDR Version 1.1?
- VIIRS EDR code base update to 2.3.
Land Surface Products (Land Surface Temperature, Land Surface Albedo, Land Surface Emissivity).
Target Operating System CentOS7.
- VIIRS Land Retrievals, including Land Surface Temperature, Land Surface Albedo, and Land Surface Emissivity.
VIIRS Cloud Retrievals, including Cloud Mask, Cloud Top Properties, Cloud Phase, Cloud Base Height, and Cloud Daytime and Nighttime Microphysical Properties.
