Welcome to the Earthdata Forum! Here, the scientific user community and subject matter experts from NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), and other contributors, discuss research needs, data, and data applications.
You aren't doing anything wrong. The issue stems from trying to keep a 20+ year old web service humming along as the world changes around it :grin: When the NRT data are replaced by the refined data, they don't get deleted right away. The L1/2 browser will only display one of them, and was preferentially selecting the NRT version. We've corrected that (hopefully), but discovered that a couple month period this Spring has missing refined browse imagery on the external servers, which causes the L1/2 browser to not display the SST at all :eek: We're in the process of whacking that mole, and hopefully all will be happy again soon.
The good news (I hope) is that we are developing a new browser. The current one has had a good run, but it's time for a new one. We'll see if we can make the new one not have the flaws of the old :wink:
