EnvDATA updates: New vegetation and ocean products from MODIS and VIIRS now online

To continue to access global remote sensing data in the Env-DATA System we are adding some new products:

MODIS Land V6 NDVI products are now available. Data files for MODIS Land V5 products, which we have accessed since 2013, are no longer available from the Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC). We are now connecting to MODIS Land V6, and have just released all of the V6 vegetation index products:

**VIIRS Ocean products are now available. **We are also building connections to products based on measurements of the VIIRS instrument on board the Suomi NPP satellite, which currently overlap with and are intended to extend beyond the lifetime of the MODIS instruments on board the Aqua and Terra satellites. VIIRS Ocean products are now available:
