How to extract GHRSST data

Postby podaac » Wed Jan 23, 2019 3:14 pm

User Inquiry:
I need to extract this dataset: GHRSST Level 4 CMC0.2deg Global Foundation Sea Surface Temperature Analysis (GDSversion 2). ... -GLOB-v2.0

However I don't know how. Can you tell me, please, what are the steps?

Thank you for your inquiry.

There are several ways of extracting and subseting the GHRSST Level-4 datasets. These methods have been captured in the PO.DAAC Forum (

Here are some helpful links:

4. Download Multiple Data Files from PODAAC Drive Using wget (viewtopic.php?f=85&t=452)

I recommend you to try the first option, which is using the CMC0.2deg data as an example. The command is:
% ./ -s 20100101 -f 20100205 -x CMC0.2deg-CMC-L4-GLOB-v2.0
