Daily-OSST new convention issues

by thomascap » Thu Dec 17, 2020 9:44 am America/New_York

Hi everyone,

We are facing an issue with regard to the convention’s differences between Daily-OSST at the date of 2017-03-01 and 2017-04-01.
For those files the conventions are different, CF-1 and CF-1.6 respectively.

// global attributes:
:Conventions = "CF-1.0" ;
:title = "Daily-OI-V2, Final, Data (Ship, Buoy, AVHRR: NOAA19, METOP, NCEP-ice)" ;
:History = "Version 2.0" ;
:creation_date = "2017-03-16 11:10" ;
:Description = "Reynolds, et al.(2007) Daily High-resolution Blended Analyses. Available at ftp://eclipse.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/OI-daily/daily-sst.pdf Climatology is based on 1971-2000 OI.v2 SST, Satellite data: Navy NOAA19 METOP AVHRR, Ice data: NCEP ice" ;
:Source = "NOAA/National Climatic Data Center" ;
:Contact = "Dick Reynolds, email: Richard.W.Reynolds@noaa.gov & Chunying Liu, email: Chunying.liu@noaa.gov" ;

// global attributes:
:Conventions = "CF-1.6" ;
:title = "NCEI Daily-OISST-V2 based mainly on AVHRR, Final" ;
:history = "Version 2.0" ;
:creation_date = "2017-04-19 16:13" ;
:source_data = "NCEP GTS,AVHRR19,MetOpA,NCEP ICE" ;
:source = "NOAA/National Centers for Environmental Information" ;
:contact = "oisst-help, email: oisst-help@noaa.gov" ;

As we are having issues with the CF-1.6, is any possibility to convert the files (CF-1.6 ; 1.6Mo) to the old version (CF-1 ; 7.9Mo) ?

Thank you very much for your help in this matter.
Best regards

Hello. It appears you are inquiring about data from NOAA -- this Forum is for questions and assistance with NASA data. However, if you were inquiring about data from the Physical Oceanography DAAC (PODAAC), they have their own forum, https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/forum/. I did not immediately recognize the product you were inquiring about as a PODAAC data product, but they have most of the NASA SST data products.
