Paper Abstract

Long-term top of atmosphere (TOA) reflectance, brightness temperature, and band ratio time series over well-established validation sites provide important information for post-launch calibration stability monitoring and analysis. In this study, we present an automated and highly extensible global validation site time series system for the Visible and Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) onboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite. The system includes 30 globally distributed sites. Validation site database and quality control parameters for each site can be easily modified without software code modification. VIIRS sensor data records over each validation site are automatically identified from NPP product archives. Validation time series plots for all VIIRS Reflective Solar Bands and Thermal Emissive Bands are updated daily and available online. Bands I2/M7 and I3/M10 inter-channel consistency analysis using the validation time series developed in this study is also included.
