Are there Matlab reader routines available from PO.DAAC for the Aquarius L2 and L3 HDF data files?

If you need a Matlab routine to read the Aquarius data (L2 or L3) we have one available at:
https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive ... /sw/matlab
callFuncs_ReadHDF5_PlotAquarius.m (simple wrapper script to call the HDF reader and Aquarius plot routines)
readHDF5.m (generalized HDF5 reader)
plotAquarius.m (simple plotting routine for Aquarius L2 or L3 data)

IDL Reader routines for both the Aquarius mission and CAP data are also available at:
https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive ... quarius/sw

The inline comments are pretty self explanatory, and there is also a section on the reader software in the Aquarius Data Users Guide document (https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive ... etV4.0.pdf), which is highly recommended reading overall if you are to work with the Aquarius data.
