Re: l2bin/l3bin/l3mapgen distortion for non-standard data product

A number of years ago I was able to add a non-standard product to NASA level-2 files and did not encounter problems with mapping. My guess is that the xml file is not the cause. Looking at the NetCDF header with "ncdump -h" for differences between NASA chl variables and the new variable mi...

Re: Bulk downloading files using python

As long as curl is working -- go for it. Curl has worked for me in the past, but was not very reliable. I think older software (curl, and wget before wget2) have logic to deal with older web services which can result in mishandling of issues with modern services, and particularly single-sign-on (SSO...

Re: Bulk downloading files using python

The post you are using is not for oceancolor. You should follow the instructions for Ocean Color Data ( https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/data/download_methods/ ). The python script you can download from that page does work with Cygwin (using the Cygwin terminal with bash or zsh), native windows, or ...

See: https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/data/download_methods/ for a python script. There are also ways to get lists of files to download, file checksums, etc.

Question: MODIS Aqua Chl-a Product

Re: MODIS Aqua Chl-a Product

Not sure what you mean by 'each MOD05_L2 product file covers a five-minute time interval (based on the start time of each MODIS Level-1B granule)' means the MOD05_L2 product has 5 minute time interval of chl-a product on global scale? The MODIS sensor scans across the track, so each 5-minute granual...

Re: MODIS Aqua Chl-a Product

Daily products just combine the available granuals, so can't capture the details when there are rapid changes in chlorophyll level. Other products (PAR) that have daily cycles, aren't usable on time scales less than 30 days, but daily products are still generated and then used to produce monthly pro...

Re: PAR L3 product - Unexpected patterns

https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/ancillary/ describes the current sea-ice data set under "Ancillary Data/Surface Properties". I'm not sure what was used for the existing MODIS Aqua processing. The patterns you see are probably due to low resolution of the ice data. When doing an annu...

Re: MODIS Aqua Chl-a Product

Firstly, the orbital period is 99 minutes means it takes 99 minutes for the Aqua satellite to move from the south pole to the north pole. Am I correct? The orbital period is time for a complete orbit, so south pole to north pole and back around to south pole. Secondly, you mentioned over 24 hours w...

Re: Old leapsec.dat file on Ancillary site

unless there's a leap second to add
or, thanks to global warming, subtract! Adding a second is simpler than subtracting, as you don't get the same time twice when adding, so it will not be surprising to see some problems with subtracting a leap second.
