VIIRS Ocean Color
VIIRS ocean color data products are being processed by NOAA CoastWatch on an experimental basis.

Global 4km chlorophyll-a (single file) and 750m (24 sector tiles) and CONUS (CoastWatch regions) are produced daily. Both CONUS and GLOBAL 750m (L2,L3) products are available through the CoastWatch THREDDS Server.

Level-2 granules can be browsed by using the CoastWatch Granule Selector. The selector allows visualization of a granule's geographic coverage with quick access to the Level-2 dataset.

NOAA OceanWatch and other US partners are in discussions with EUMETSAT to develop pre-operational support for Sentinel-3 data and products. [more]
