Some missing VIIRS-SNPP L3m data day directories

by vtsontos » Thu Jan 05, 2023 1:03 pm America/New_York

Hello,
we noticed that there appear to be some missing VIIRS-SNPP data day directories (210-212) in 2022 at
https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/directdataaccess/Level-3%20Mapped/SNPP-VIIRS/2022/.
Just wanted to alert you to this in case it was not known, and ask what the cause may be and whether data for those dates will be added?
Thanks,
Vardis Tsontos (NASA/JPL)

Vardis,

SNPP-VIIRS was in safehold from sometime mid-day the 26th of July through mid-day the 10th of August. No data was collected, so no directories created for those days. Some longer temporal data (e.g. 8D, R32, etc.) do exist, and directories for the first day those periods exist. For example, you'll see day 213 (the 1st of August) exists because of the monthly file, but days 214-220 have no data, so don't exist.

Regards,
Sean
