1 Exploiting New Sensors on NOAA NPP – VIIRS for Ocean Applications Beyond the VIIRS -- SST And Ocean Color University of Southern Mississippi May Arnone - USM- DNB

2 2 VIIRS  Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite Ocean channels Day Night Band Low Light Sensitivity channel DNB  700nm width 88nm 725 m resolution - calibrated

3 VIIRS -- Low Light _ Day Night Band senses Ship Lights and vessels activity Fishing Applications Fish Ship activity aligns with the Ocean Fronts The ocean fronts are detected in the Chlorophyll and the SST fronts Platforms Oil Platforms light are fixed Periodic Flaring of the Oil Platform is detected. 3Arnone - USM- DNB

5 Note Location of the Fishing vessels to the Chlorophyll fronts 5Arnone - USM- DNB

6 Lining up Ocean Fronts with Night Lights Fishing activity and Platforms Night Lights Ocean Platforms and ship locations Channel Traffic Through Barrier Island 6Arnone - USM- DNB

7 Animation from Nov – Oct 31 Platform Flaring Activity Alignment of Fishing vessels Notes: Ocean Applications 1- Light Detection through Atm / cloud cover conditions 2- Brightness proportional to aerosol thickness 3- Changes on Vessel locations responsive to Ocean Fronts. Requirement for Sensitivity of Ocean Target Calibration 7Arnone - USM- DNB

17 Ocean Applications for the Night Band Questions: -What intensity light is detectable from a fishing vessel? - How is Light intensity and target detection impacted by the aerosols? -Can bright object target be improved using atmospheric removal? -How is variation in light intensity linked to target characteristics? - Target shape and intentiy linked to platforms, tankers, fisheries? Ocean surveillance -Are fishing activey aligned with the chlorophyll and SST fronts? - Can we assess poaching activities? - Can we assess Platform “Flaring” activity for Carbon Flux? 17Arnone - USM- DNB
