A number of SNPP Environmental Data Records are being distributed on EUMETCast in the frame of Copernicus. The provision of these EDRs was initially referred to as the ‘SNPP4C’ service.

The products are:

VIIRS Ocean Colour — Suomi-NPP
VIIRS Sea Surface Temperature — Suomi-NPP
VIIRS Aerosol Optical Depth — Suomi-NPP
OMPS Total Column Ozone EDR — Suomi-NPP
OMPS Ozone Nadir Profile — Suomi-NPP

The service is now being extended to include available EDRs from the NOAA-20 satellite. These are:

  • VIIRS Sea Surface Temperature (in GHRSST netCDF format)
  • VIIRS Aerosol Optical Depth (in BUFR format)
  • OMPS Total Column Ozone (in BUFR format).

For more information on the products, see:

The NOAA-20 VIIRS Ocean Colour and OMPS Ozone Nadir Profile products are planned to be added to the data flow at a later stage.

The NOAA-20 EDRs will be distributed on EUMETCast Europe, Transponder 2 High Volume Service:
Channel: E2H-CTP-2
