VIIRS L2 generated file is not opening

by pratik001 » Tue Dec 28, 2021 3:59 pm America/New_York

I have successfully generated VIIRS l2 file from VIIRS L1 data using L2gen(OCSSW).But my output file(VIIRS L2 file) is not opening in SeaDas. No error msg what so ever. I can't understand the problem. Need urgent help.
Thanks and regards.

If you need a prompt response you should do everything possible to make it easy for others to understand and reproduce your problem. This means providing your OS('s), SeaDAS, and OCSSW l2gen versions, the VIIRS L1 filename, and the details of your level-2 processing (ancillary data, l2_prod list, output format). If you ran the processing using the SeaDAS GUI, you may get more information by running the same step in a terminal.

Have you been able to process other VIIRS files? If not, you can install a VIIRS benchmark that will
allow you to test processing on your system in a way that is easy for others to reproduce.

If you use NetCDF format, try to open the file in other NetCDF viewers like NASA Panoply. Compare the netcdf "header" (from "ncdump -f <ncfilename>") with a file that does open in the SeaDAS GUI.
