Abstract
The Joint Polar Satellite System 1 (JPSS-1) is the follow on mission to the Suomi-National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) and provides critical weather and global climate products to the user community. A primary sensor on both JPSS-1 and S-NPP is the Visible-Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) with the Reflective Solar Band (RSB), Thermal Emissive Band (TEB) and Day Night Band (DNB) imagery providing a diverse spectral range of Earth observations. These VIIRS observation are radiometrically calibrated within the Sensor Data Records (SDRs) for use in Environmental Data Record (EDR) products such as Ocean Color/Chlorophyll (OCC) and Sea Surface Temperature (SST). Spectrally the VIIRS sensor can be broken down into 4 groups: the Visible Near Infra-Red (VNIR), Short-Wave Infra-Red (SWIR), Mid- Wave Infra-Red (MWIR) and Long-Wave Infra-Red (LWIR). The SWIR spectral bands on JPSS-1 VIIRS have a nonlinear response at low light levels affecting the calibration quality where Earth scenes are dark (like oceans). This anomalous behavior was not present on S-NPP VIIRS and will be a unique feature of the JPSS-1 VIIRS sensor. This paper will show the behavior of the SWIR response non-linearity on JPSS-1 VIIRS and potential mitigation approaches to limit its impact on the SDR and EDR products.
