Since late 2011, the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) Visible/Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) day–night band (DNB) has observed global AGWs near the mesopause by virtue of its  ...  Here, we present preliminary results of comparisons between VIIRS/DNB and VISI observations of AGWs, focusing on several concentric AGW events excited by the thunderstorms over Eastern Asia in August 2013  ...  In terms of temporal resolution, at the time of this writing both Suomi NPP and the more recently launched NOAA-20 (18 November 2017) satellite carry the DNB as part of a long-term operational program,  ...

The Dark Side of Hurricane Matthew: Unique Perspectives from the VIIRS Day/Night Band

Steven D. Miller, William C. Straka, Jia Yue, Curtis J. Seaman, Shuang Xu, Christopher D. Elvidge, Lars Hoffmann, Irfan Azeem
2018 Bulletin of The American Meteorological Society - (BAMS)  
The VIIRS Day/Night Band on Suomi NPP reveals key nocturnal aspects of the storm during its deadly traverse through the Caribbean and the U.S. eastern seaboard.  ...  The VIIRS DNB is a radiometer engineered specifically to detect very low levels of visible-to-near-infrared-spectrum (500-900 nm) light (Miller et al. 2013) .  ...  Through examples such as Hurricane Matthew and the other major hurricanes of the 2017 season, the DNB continues to make a case for how low-light visible observations help to bridge the nocturnal gap.  ...
