This example dataset from 11/14/2023 was produced from Aqua/Terra L1 MODIS observations over the Antarctic coast and over Siberia/Arctic Ocean.
The input granules were processed with a VIIRS L1 Generator application to apply bow-tie effect and re-project the data from MODIS to VIIRS spatial resolution, and to assign the MODIS bands to their adjacent VIIRS bands. Complete observations of Imagery band 5 & Moderate Resolution Bands 12-16 are presented, however the incomplete observations in the remaining VIIRS bands are available upon request
This example data presents proxy VIIRS-like data granules over areas of the globe that were not being overflown by Suomi or NOAA-20 (the platforms equipped with VIIRS instruments) at the time of observation, providing the opportunity to have VIIRS-scaled observation possible over a larger area for a given time & allowing historic L1 MODIS observations to be reprocessed into proxy-VIIRS form
