Topic: Terminate distribution of IDPS SNPP EDRs from PDA on December 31, 2018

Date/Time Issued: July 23, 2018 1854Z

Product(s) or Data Impacted: See a list of products at

Date/Time of Initial Impact: December 31, 2018

Date/Time of Expected End: N/A

Length of Event: N/A

Details/Specifics of Change:

The processing of Environmental Data Records (EDRs) from SNPP and follow on satellites has been reallocated from IDPS to NDE.

Most replacement products have been operational in NDE, which includes VIIRS cloud, aerosol, cryosphere, SST, Active Fire, surface reflectance, CrIS/ATMS Soundings, OMPS Nadir Profiler and Total Column Ozone. VIIRS ocean color is produced in ESPC OKEANOS.

VIIRS vegetation indices and land surface temperature/land surface albedo will be available from NDE in summer 2018 and fall 2018 respectively.

The NDE enterprise products provide users with continuity of NOAA products between current and future NOAA operational satellites.M-B It also demonstrates NOAAM-bM-^@M-^Ys goal of enterprise solutions by employing the same algorithms for POES and GOES. This brings scientific consistency between the current operational products, GOES-R products and VIIRS products.

The plan to discontinue the EDR production in IDPS is in process. Users are recommended to switch from IDPS EDRs to NDE Enterprise products on or before December 31, 2018.

Users that are currently only subscribe the IDPS EDRs from PDA should switch to the equivalent NDE Enterprise products. Users subscribe to both IDPS and NDE products are encouraged to discontinue their subscriptions to IDPS EDRs once they have concluded their evaluation and validation.
