Data Quality UPDATE: Near Real Time VIIRS SNPP Ocean Color products quality issue resolved with data beginning March 2, 2018.
The calibration issue affecting the NOAA/IDPS Sensor Data Record (SDR, i.e., L1B) for VIIRS SNPP and the Near Real Time Ocean Color Environmental Data Record (EDR) has been resolved. Data processed as of March 2, 2018 and onward meet quality standards. Thank you for using NOAA CoastWatch/OceanWatch data.
Data Quality NOTICE: Near Real Time VIIRS SNPP Ocean Color products are severely degraded from 16 February 2018 until further notice.
The S-NPP VIIRS ocean color products produced within NOAA STAR are undergoing a processing change (products produced in near real-time operationally within OSPO will remain unchanged). As a result, beginning February 20, 2018 the following changes are expected:
Users of geo-SST products,
This notice is to inform you and your group that certain legacy geo-SST products will be discontinued or severely impacted with the transition of GOES-13 to GOES-16 on or about November 20, 2017.
The legacy GOES-13 SST products, (gridded, in binary format) were not planned for continuation for GOES-16.
Dear CoastWatch VIIRS Ocean Color User,
Good news! The NOAA VIIRS Science Quality Ocean Color Level 2 Environmental Data Record products have been improved. Currently, CoastWatch is replacing the entire mission-long dataset with the new dataset from MSL12 v1.21 reprocessing. The new dataset will be available August 9,2017. Please check back soon to access full mission, MLS12 v1.21 VIIRS ocean color products.
Thanks for your interest in CoastWatch data. Please consider signing up for our mailing list for future announcements.
NOAA CoastWatch/OceanWatch is now distributing Sentinel-3 OLCI Level-2 and Level-3 ocean color datasets. Data is provided courtesy of EUMETSAT as part of the Copernicus Program. NOAA CoastWatch will be increasing product coverage over the next month.
For more information, please refer to our OLCI near real-time product page.
NOAA CoastWatch/OceanWatch is now distributing daily Level-3 sea level anomaly datasets produced by the NOAA Laboratory for Satellite Altimetry. The datasets are produced globally with near-real time data from a constellation of radar altimeter missions.
