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