Abstract
Monitoring of VIIRS ocean clear-sky brightness temperatures against CRTM Simulations has been initially implemented in the NOAA Integrated Calibration/Validation System (ICVS) for VIIRS calibration and validation. The initial system builds upon the heritage Monitoring of IR Clear-sky Radiances over Ocean for SST (MICROS). Substantial effort was made to further minimize the observation minus simulation biases. Preliminary results show that both mean biases and standard deviation are significantly improved in ICVS, compared to MICROS. The long term stability has also improved and shows a close cross-sensor consistency between VIIRS and MODIS. The current monitoring system is ready for J1 VIIRS test.
