The PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the release of the version 2.41 VIIRS-NPP Level-2P/3U Sea Surface Temperature (SST) datasets produced by the NOAA Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO). This release is an upgrade from the current version 2.40, which ended on Sept. 15th, 2017. The changes made in the upgrade include adapting spatial smoothing of the differential atmospheric correction, using “standard deviation (SD) of Baseline SST minus in situ SST” over “SD of Piecewise Regression (PWR) SST minus in situ SST”, and improving the ACSPO clear-sky mask (ACSM) performance in the twilight zones. Both datasets (L2P/L3U) are in compliance with the Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Data Processing Specification version 2 (GDS2) and contains daily global coverage with 750 m spatial resolution for L2P and 2 km spatial resolution for L3U SST. More information on the new dataset can be ....
