Welcome to the Earthdata User Forum! Here, subject matter experts from several NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAAC) can discuss general questions, research needs and data applications. Users can query how to access, view and interpret the data.
Level-2 flags (masks) cannot be output products of the l2bin. The reasoning is that for a given binned output file pixel, you can have multiple source input files which contribute to the bin aggregate depending on the flag (mask) of the particular source input file. Once a file is binned, the connection between the source flags and their respective source pixels is lost, so flagging after binning would not be useful.
