Using CSPP’s polar2grid to create mappings of sea-surface temperature

The Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) allows a user to manipulate VIIRS data to create high-quality, full-resolution imagery (see, for example, this I05 example, and this Day Night Band example, and this I01 example). In addition to single-band images, imagery for products such as Advanced Clear Sky Processor for Ocean (ACSPO) sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) can also be created, as shown above. Polar2grid software... Read More
