L3mapgen interpolations

by alysiaherr » Mon Jan 30, 2017 6:05 pm America/New_York

Hello,

Anyone know the differences between the interp settings on the L3mapgen function?  I'm making 8-day composites of 1km resolution sst using L2 files, and would like to minimize the cross-hatching effect that I'm presently getting (I used the 'area' interp option).  Obvious in the attached image: in particular, the "V" at the top of the image. .

When you use "interp=area" you can also set the "fudge" parameter to make each pixel bigger.  This will average the neighboring pixels, but will obviously decrease your resolution.

Are you sure the artifact is introduced by l3mapgen and not l2bin?

Can you put the bin file and l3mapgen command line parameters somewhere where I can grab them.

Very well could come from l2bin -- any good way to determine that?  I perfomed l2bin on each file individually, then l3 bin in chunks of 8 days worth of files.  Finally l3mapgen.  Here's an image of my l3mapgen parameters:



Here's a link to the final L3 mapped file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w70ek5g9te9a653/A2016193-200_8D_L3M.nc?dl=0
And a link to the L3 bin file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kuegkcahaeh3cxg/A20161932016200.L3b_8D_SST?dl=0

Here's the log file readout for one instance of using l3bin:
And below that, I've posted the l3mapgen log.

Thanks!
