Overview:
VIIRS, a scanning radiometer, collects visible and infrared imagery and radiometric measurements of the land, atmosphere, cryosphere, and oceans. VIIRS data is used to measure cloud and aerosol properties, ocean color, sea and land surface temperature, ice motion and temperature, fires, and Earth's albedo. Climatologists use VIIRS data to improve our understanding of global climate change.
Mass: Approximately 275 kilograms
Average Power: 200 Watts
Development Institutions: Raytheon Company
Purpose: To collect measurements of clouds, aerosols, ocean color, surface temperature, fires, and albedo.
