Hi all,
the MODIS A2020198122500.L2_LAC_OC.nc file can be downloaded but all the geophysical data fields result to be empty.
Do you have information about this issue?
Thank you.

Hi Marco,

That scene and the one before it and the one after it are corrupt (perhaps during
transmission to the ground station).  Sometimes we get better data later from
our providers.
