OBDAAC-Direct Data Download Errors

by cssprad1 » Fri Feb 19, 2021 9:46 am America/New_York

Hi all,

I seem to be having trouble with downloading certain L2 data directly from Direct Data Access browser on the OceanColor site. Links to data products that are shown to be available on the OC Direct Data Access directory seem to be broken.

E.g. https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ob/ ... SNPP_OC.nc gives a 404 -- "...We are sorry, but an error has occurred. Please use the back button to return to the previous page."

https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ob/ ... _LAC_OC.nc gives the same HTTP error.

Normally, this would seem to be a user error however you can see that the link to these files exist in the browser ('VIIRS-SNPP/L2/2018/031/V2018031040000.L2_SNPP_OC.nc'). I had a colleague try to download these files as well and they received the same error.

Any help would be appreciated!
