l2bin - unsupported datatype output

by cliffordoo » Mon Jun 26, 2023 11:26 pm America/New_York

Hi Everyone,

I am receiving some unusual output when processing from L2 to L3 using L2bin. I am interested in obtaining the products Rrs_645, Rrs_859, as well as nLw for both of these bands. I have tried processing from both the GUI and a batch script. The netCDF output from the GUI processing is below. I tried importing the Rrs_645 variable but the output is "not a recognized NetCDF datatype." In the output below "unsupported datatype" appears in the variable list. I was expecting a matrix that could be mapped with l3mapgen.

Thanks for your help.

Andy

I downloaded A2002185040500.L1A_LAC and AQUA_MODIS.20020704T040500.GEO.hdf,
did modis_L1B, l2gen, l2bin, and l3mapgen. I was able to create
AQUA_MODIS.2002070420020704.L3m_Rrs_645.DAY.nc
AQUA_MODIS.2002070420020704.L3m_Rrs_859.DAY.nc
AQUA_MODIS.2002070420020704.L3m_nLw_645.DAY.nc

When you get

Variables:
BinList
Size: 159167x1
Dimensions: binListDim
Datatype: UNSUPPORTED DATATYPE
Rrs_645
Size: 159167x1
Dimensions: binDataDim
Datatype: UNSUPPORTED DATATYPE
BinIndex
Size: 69120x1
Dimensions: binIndexDim
Datatype: UNSUPPORTED DATATYPE

with ncdisp

It just means the datatype is not supported by NetCDF. It probably does not prevent you from doing l3mapgen on the file AQUA_MODIS.2002070420020704.L3b.DAY.nc

Thanks for the response. Works in the GUI, but I am trying to batch process.
Here is the script...

##############################
for l2filename in *.L2

do
# define file directories and create file list
datadir="/home/andrew/modis/process/"
outdir="/home/andrew/modis/process/"
flags=ATMFAIL,LAND,HIGLINT,STRAYLIGHT,CLDICE,HISOLZEN,HISATZEN

rootfilename=`echo $l2filename | awk '{print substr($0,1,14)}'`
outL2filename=`echo $rootfilename".L3"`
$OCSSWROOT/bin/l2bin infile=$l2filename ofile=$outL2filename resolve='Q' flaguse=$flags l3bprod='ALL'

done

for l3filename in *.L3

do

# define file directories and create file list
datadir="/home/andrew/modis/process/"
outdir="/home/andrew/modis/process/"
# Desired products: chlor_a sst par l2_flags qual_sst,Rrs_645,Rrs_859,nLw_645,nLw_859,l2_flags
prods=Rrs_645,Rrs_859,nLw_645,nLw_859,l2_flags

rootfilename=`echo $l3filename | awk '{print substr($0,1,14)}'`
outl3filename=`echo $rootfilename".L3M"`
$OCSSWROOT/bin/l3mapgen ifile=$l3filename ofile=$outl3filename product=$prods resolution=250m north=-3$

done


exit 0
########################

When I process with l3mapgen, I get the following error...

Loading default parameters from /home/andrew/SeaDAS/ocssw/share/modis/l3mapgen_defaults.par
Product: l2_flags not found.-E- Could not find product="Rrs_645,Rrs_859,nLw_645,nLw_859,l2_flags" in file="A2002185040500.L3".

It seems to be unable to find the products that I am interested in. I have tried changing l3mapgen_defaults.par to include those products, but the same error results. This routine works just fine for other products, but not the Rrs at 250km.

Is there a step that I am missing?

Thanks again,

Andy

I don't think you can bin l2_flags. See the explanation here -- viewtopic.php?p=13793&hilit=l2bin#p13824

If you take l2_flags out, and have
prods=Rrs_645,Rrs_859,nLw_645,nLw_859

things should work
