Question: MODIS Aqua new file naming and QLP QL RF

Re: MODIS Aqua new file naming and QLP QL RF

Julian, As you noted, with the R2022 reprocessing we are including ".NRT" in the filename for, well, near real-time data. This is the equivalent of the previous QL (and QLP) designation. There will only be one "quicklook" (NRT) product produced prior to the final (is it ever fina...

Re: [SeaBASS - MODISA] SST retrieval at night

The CLDICE flag is an ocean color flag, not a SST flag. Cloud masking is entirely different for SST (and differs a bit between day and night). For SST, unless you have a reason to do otherwise, you should use the quality flags (qual_sst) for selecting good quality SST retrievals. There is an flags_s...

Re: SeaDAS versioning affecting Landsat chl processing

Luke, Vicarious gains are always applied, although sometimes they are just a bunch of 1s ;) The values are in the $OCDATAROOT/<sensor>[/platform]/msl12_defaults.par file The issue you noticed was not a misapplication of the gains (well, not directly), but rather a change in the default gaseous absor...

Re: MODIS ATH/EPH file available?

Jay, No, this is not related to any power outage, just a cascade of failures related to a hardware issue with our database servers. We are *mostly* (if not fully by the time you read this) back to normal...but I say that with some caution as every time I say something like that the computers make me...

Re: Continuing issues with oceandata subscriptions

Andrew, No investigation is necessary since we know exactly where the problem lies. Earlier this week our database servers suffered a hardware related failure. While we were able to restore them relatively quickly, we discovered another issue that prevented bringing them back to full operational cap...

Re: File Search API and Direct Data Access are inaccessible since midnight (7/12)

Yuyuan,

It is not you...our servers suffered a hardware related failure and are currently undergoing unschedule maintenance. We hope to restore services later today (12 July 2022).

Question: VIIRS striping and M1/M2 band comparisons to MODIS
Replies: 2

Re: VIIRS striping and M1/M2 band comparisons to MODIS

The short answer is yes, the temporal calibration (including detector/mirror-side striping) will be much improved with the upcoming reprocessing for VIIRS (on both SNPP and NOAA-20). So, also yes, what you're seeing is instrument artifacts in VIIRS. MODIS-Aqua is next up in the reprocessing hopper, ...

Re: File Search broken ?

We are investigating, but the problem is not consistent so diagnosing it is proving a challenge. Stay tuned.

Re: MODIS/Terra Availability

There was an issue with a distribution server upstream from us that prevented us from getting the data. That issue is resolved and we should be caught up with the data ingest/processing soon.

Re: Hawkeye processing with MUMM

Yes, the code works with Hawkeye...hasn't been evaluated with it, but it doesn't blow up, so that's a good sign ;)
