satpy.readers.oceancolorcci_l3_nc module

Reader for files produced by ESA’s Ocean Color CCI project.

This reader currently supports the lat/lon gridded products and does not yet support the products on a sinusoidal grid. The products on each of the composite periods (1, 5 and 8 day plus monthly) are supported and both the merged product files (OC_PRODUCTS) and single product (RRS, CHLOR_A, IOP, K_490) are supported.

File handler for Ocean Color CCI netCDF files.

Initialize object.

property composite_period

Determine composite period from filename information.

property end_time

Get the end time.


Get the area definition based on information in file.

There is no area definition in the file itself, so we have to compute it from the metadata, which specifies the area extent and pixel resolution.

get_dataset(dataset_id, ds_info)[source]

Get dataset.

property start_time

Get the start time.
