Outdated Planetary Ephemeris in OCSSW Distribution

I retrieved ocssw using install_ocssw.py --install-dir=/tmp/ocssw-fetch/ocssw/ -b v7.5 --aqua --terra --viirsn --viirsj1 from 2021-10-12 03:08:27Z to 2021-10-12 03:11:49Z The de200.eos file retrieved (from git?) during that process had expired. After I figured out what was wrong I replaced it with o...

Re: modis_GEO.py failures

Good tips, thank you! At least for now I'm testing that the gbad files are are 19968 bytes or more long and start with EOSAM1 or EOSAM2. If I find that's not working I'll come up with plan B. In the case of netcdf/hdf files I have an automated test that ncdump -h doesn't return an error code. In add...

Re: modis_GEO.py failures

OK, this is embarrassing :oops: Our download script was retrieving html error messages instead of gbad files and happily injecting them into the production system as if they were actual gbad files. Needless to say modis_GEO.py didn't read / process them properly. Anyway, I'm off to add a trap to the...

modis_GEO.py failures

Some time late in the UTC day 2021-10-10 or early in the day 2021-10-11 modis_GEO.py mysteriously stopped working (we hadn't manipulated the system in months). Here's an example of what's happening when I try to process almost any data with it: /marine-services/ocssw/scripts/modis_GEO.py --threshold...

Subscriptions broken

We have 8 different subscriptions that we normally get data from using the file search cgi (https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/api/file_search/). The subscriptions get data from VIIRS/NPP, VIIRS/N20, MODISA and MODIST. All 8 subscriptions stopped returning new data between 11 and 15 UTC on 5/5/2021...

MODIST geo files?

John,

Thank you for the quick reply!

Just out of curiosity, why does MODISA get 5 minute attitude and ephemeris files while MODIST gets 2 hour ones?

MODIST geo files?

Are geo files for MODIST available for download from oceandata? If so where should I be looking?

Or does one need to make their own from the two hourly attitude and ephemeris files?

Thank you!
