viirs L3 outage? May 2017

by fields » Tue May 30, 2017 6:46 pm America/New_York

Is the Viirs L3 processing ok?   There are gaps in the May 2017 daily L3 data.    Yet, dates that are missing L3 data have L2 available.    The browse tool says May 3-10, 20-28  are "Not Available".

An example
https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi/l3?per=DAY&prd=SNPP_RRS_Rrs_410.nc&sen=V&res=4km&num=24&ctg=Standard&date=29May2017

however there is L2 for May 6
https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi/browse.pl?per=DAY&day=17292&sub=level3&prm=CHL&set=10&ndx=0&mon=17257&sen=v0&rad=0&frc=0&rgn=OCPlumes&cn=37.08&cs=31.14&cw=-123.59&ce=-117.25&dnm=D

This appears to be a problem with the images in the L3 browser. The VIIRS L3 production is up to date. 
I'll notify the web admins of the problem. Try your query again tomorrow.

Thanks for the reply towens.

If I use the file search tool I can see all the files without a gap, but there are gaps with the L3 browser or the direct access  https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/VIIRS/Binned/Daily/SNPP/2017/

In the direct access the file dates are steady to 5/20/17 then they jump to 5/30/17.  Maybe the files are around (the file search files them) but they haven't made to to the direct access area or to where the L3 browser looks.
