I have remarked different processing version for "similar" VIIRSN level 2 product,
what is the meaning of the "P" at the ned of the tag "pversion":
V2017190051800.L2_SNPP_OC.nc => /processing_control/input_parameters/NC_GLOBAL#pversion=2014.0.2QLP
V2017190065400.L2_SNPP_OC.nc => /processing_control/input_parameters/NC_GLOBAL#pversion=2014.0.2QL
Thank you in advance.
The QLP are replaced within about two hours by the QL which are Quick Look products that are produced from the VIIRS L0 time-based files with whatever ancillary data are available at production time.
Those QL files will be replaced in about 16 days with the pversion=2014.0.2 refined products that use all refined ancillary data.
is there any way to know from an option of the query on-line command if a product is QL or QLP?
As the product names are the same, I don't know how to distinguish them except by checking the files dates but I have this information only after downloading the files.
If you set up a non-extracted subscription to the QL data, that subscription query will only return QL file names.
