VIIRS DNB Quick Guide

The VIIRS Day-Night Band (DNB) is a unique capability on the Suomi NPP satellite that is fairly new to many users. The products from this band and how they are created are described in this guide. The reflectance from moonlight and emission from surface sources shown by the DNB provide a unique opportunity to monitor smoke plumes at night, changes in urban light patterns (i.e., power outages), and other night-time features.
