        abstract:  This data set contains a high quality Environmental Data Record (EDR) of nighttime cloud optical and microphysical properties (NCOMP) from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument onboard the Suomi-NPP satellite and is produced by the NOAA Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS). The EDR contains Cloud Optical Depth (COD), Cloud effective Particle Size (CPS), and Liquid and Ice Water Path (LWP and IWP). Liquid and ice water path are calculated subsequently from COD and CPS. The NCOMP algorithm uses VIIRS bands M7, M15, and M16. The EDR provides global coverage daily at a spatial resolution of 750 meters at nadir. VIIRS NCOMP data distributed by the NESDIS Data Exploitation (NDE) system and obtained from the Comprehensive Large-Array Stewardship System (CLASS) are distributed as single 86-second granules in NetCDF-4 format with metadata attributes included.
        purpose:  The VIIRS NCOMP product is used to parameterize clouds in global climate models. Precise retrievals are critical to improving climate models.

            measureDescription:  The Data Stewardship Maturity Matrix (DSMM) is a unified framework that defines criteria for each of nine components based on measurable practices, which can be used to apply a progressive, 6-level rating to an individual dataset, representing stewardship maturity stages rated as Not Assessed or Not Available (Level 0), adHoc (Level 1), minimum (Level 2), intermediate (Level 3), advanced (Level 4), and optimal (Level 5).
            evaluationMethodDescription:  Data Stewardship Maturity Assessment was evaluated by the metadata content editor for the NOAA OneStop project using the Scientific Data Stewardship Maturity Assessment Model Template v4.0.
