I am having difficulty extracting my Terra Modis 8 day chlorophyll files from the requested_files.tar file. Every time I unzip the file, a different number of files are extracted (2-12 files of the 68 in my order). I have used the same method to download previous daily chlorophyll data successfully-I am using the python script. I am very new to this so any help is appreciated.
I have tried to create a new order but to no avail-same problem.
Do you have any suggestions for my problem?
I found two recent orders for Terra L3 8-day data associated with your username. The first created on Aug 5th had 98 extracted files (49 binned and 49 mapped chlor_a files). The second created today had 52 extracted files (26 binned and mapped). I was able to retrieve the tar bundles for each using the python script (obdaac_download), and successfully untar them (they are not zipped).
If the tar file was incompletely downloaded, you should have seen an indication of that when extracting the files, e.g.:
Code: Select all
tar -xvf requested_files_1.tar x requested_files/T20020332002040.L3b_8D_CHL.x.nc ... x requested_files/T20020332002040.L3m_8D_CHL.x_chlor_a.nc: Truncated tar archive tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
