Question: Negative POC values Modis Aqua

Re: Negative POC values Modis Aqua

Something isn't right with the way you are reading the data. The minimum unscaled (non-fill) value in that file (A20031522003181.L3m_MO_POC_poc_4km.nc) is -31943, which when converted to the geophysical value is 11.4 mg/m^3...which is the minimum POC value I found in the file. Even if you were to sc...

Re: Negative POC values Modis Aqua

The minimum POC value in that file is 8.3999. The data are stored as a scaled integer and must have the scaling applied to get the geophysical value. For this file the scale_factor is 0.2 and the add_offset is 6400. Most netCDF readers should apply this for you, but if yours does not, you would need...

Question: Some HawkEye data not downloadable

Re: Some HawkEye data not downloadable

You may have noticed that there was a one second difference in the time element of the filename. Some of the data prior to the commissioning date were reprocessed (code changes to address issues) and this reprocessing resulted in a slightly different start time (and thus filename). When a file is re...

The simulated PACE L1B data are currently being regenerated. Once that process and evaluation is complete the data will be restored to the data distribution page.

Degraded Ocean Color data

We were recently alerted to an apparent issue with the ozone ancillary data used in ocean color data processing. The issue is anomalously high ozone concentrations in the region between about 30S and 50S corresponding to the AURA-OMI ground track: N202119900_O3_AURAOMI_24h_ozone.png This issue seems...

Re: Low reflectances after l2gen processing of VIIRS SDR from CSPP

Silvia, Since you got a result, it's not that l2gen is no longer compatible with the SDR input, rather the issue is that the on-orbit calibration differs between the IDPS (and thus CSPP) processing and the NASA VIIRS L1 processing (as would any vicarious calibration, which I see you disabled by sett...

Question: SeaDAS 8.1.0 -- MODIS GEO file
Replies: 14

Re: MODIS GEO file

On a Mac, SeaDAS tends to prefer the system installed python, which is fine, as long as it has the requests module (and it's 2.18 or newer). What is the requests library version for that?
