L2BIN Processing Error on VIIRS for 2020124 files.

by itejeda » Tue May 05, 2020 3:45 am America/New_York

Good Morning,

I am processing Chlorophyll data from l2 files.

Today an error came up while the l2bin algorithm was processing VIIRS SNPP and JPSS1 for 2020124 (3rd of May).

---
Insufficient valid latitudes found
Consider QC fail for file: /var/local/datasets/chlorophyll/VIIRS_JPSS1_SNPP/L2/2020124/V2020124174200.L2_JPSS1_OC.nc
...look at the file though, as I might be lying...
---
It is the first time I see an error like this, however I would like to remove failed files from the algorithm. Is there any way to check if the file is ok?

By the way, I am currently working with l2bin 5.0.0 (Aug 16 2019 12:47:25).

Any advice would be appreciated

Best Regards.
Iago Tejeda

Iago,
The file in question suffers from some serious data loss.  Most of the granule is fill data.  The lack of a more complete lat/lon array is confusing the binner as it tries to determine if the file exists in the "day" you are binning.  You have a couple options. 

    1) remove it from your list - not much data there anyway, or
    2) try setting prodtype=regional - if you're not doing global binning, this should work for you

Ok.

I've removed the file from the list of items as I am creating a global product.

Thank you Sean

Iago.
