QuikSCAT data using HITIDE, time problem.

Postby citurralab » Fri Sep 27, 2019 9:34 am

Hello, I'm using Hitide to download Quikscat ocean wind level 2b data, the problem is when I download all the nc files and try to read them using matlab, in some files the time inside the nc file = 0 (not similar to the time printed in the name file), but the variables speed and direction show good data. For example, a normal file looks like this:

file = 'subsetted-qs_l2b_02819_v3.1_200001031013.nc'
time = ncread(files,'time');
time

2000 1 3 10 27 31
2000 1 3 10 27 33
2000 1 3 10 27 35
2000 1 3 10 27 36
2000 1 3 10 27 38

note that the time of the name file, is not the same as the time inside the nc file.

a bad time variable inside the nc file looks like this:

file = 'subsetted-qs_l2b_54289_v3.1_200911211038.nc'
time = ncread(file,'time')
time =
0
0
0
.
* speed and direction inside the nc file shows good data, just the time variable is wrong.

am I doing something wrong?, I will appreciate any help. Thanks a lot.

Hi,

Thanks for your inquiry and support.
We can not reproduce your time variable error right now, could you please let us know the time and area range you have selected ? Thanks.
Regards,

Hello yiboj, thanks for the reply...Area is the central south of Chile(2000-2009), but finally I just omitted those days, don't worry....But right now. when I try to download ocean wind data from quikscat, ascat or rapidscat, HITIDE the platform tells me that there is no data (I downloaded data from the same area a few days ago):

QSCAT_LEVEL_2B_OWV_COMP_12_LCR_3.1 – 0 matching granules
RSCAT_LEVEL_2B_OWV_CLIM_12_V1 – 0 matching granules


Thanks and Best regards from Chile
