Outdated Planetary Ephemeris in OCSSW Distribution
Posted: Fri Oct 15, 2021 1:41 pm America/New_York
I retrieved ocssw using
install_ocssw.py --install-dir=/tmp/ocssw-fetch/ocssw/ -b v7.5 --aqua --terra --viirsn --viirsj1
from 2021-10-12 03:08:27Z to 2021-10-12 03:11:49Z
The de200.eos file retrieved (from git?) during that process had expired.
After I figured out what was wrong I replaced it with one downloaded from https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ocssw/de200.eos
and everything worked normally.
I think it would be a good idea, please, to update the one that comes with the distribution.

has been replaced by the current version, which is now identified by "tag". There are likely more changes than just the ephemeris data. Using a "tag" means everyone can have the same commits. The "branch" always includes recent commits, so what you have may depend on when you installed the branch. The new
can list the available tags:
Code: Select all
~% install_ocssw --list_tags
You probably want
(or later when available).
