getanc places some data in non-standard folders

by smasse » Thu Sep 22, 2022 9:06 pm America/New_York

Starting August 19, 2022 the scripts gatanc.py (SeaDAS 7.5) and getanc (SeaDAS V2022.0) started to store some ancillary
data in unconventionally named folders. The usual storage is .../ancillary/<year>/<day-of-year>. Note that the
behavior is the same with 7.5 and V2022.0 and that the processing is not affectedi. I have attached two examples
of getanc.py; before and after August 18.

On July 26, 2022 I ran the following getanc.py. The ancillary storage folder is normal:

/usr/local/seadas/7.5/run/scripts/getanc.py --verbose --refreshDB --no2 /users/seadas/data/20220726044000.eam1/T20220726044000.gran.L1B_1KM.hdf

On July 26, 2022 I ran the following getanc. The ancillary storage folder is different for some data:

Re: getanc places some data in non-standard folders

Thanks for reporting the issue. getanc.py(SeaDAS -7.5) and getanc(V2022.0) are returning a new set of ancillary files. The new filenames do not start with "NYYYY...", and getanc.py and getanc have trouble recognizing them. The bug was fixed. getanc will behave right in the next tag of OCSSW, but getanc.py will keep placing the ancillary files in the non-standard folders.

Thanks for the quick answer. I will modify the processing accordingly and wait for the next tag availability
P.S. Will a post be submitted in this forum when the next tag is available?
