 * Note:  Bitfile size includes multiple flights.
 # Note:  This COS-blocked bitfile was archived directly from the master
           1/2" tape on 22 July 1999 but was subsequently unreadable by
           an old GENPRO tape-dump program, even though the data transferred
           from the tape without error.

 

The GENPRO data could not be converted to NetCDF.

There is only one file for this dataset, G00136, which is listed as containing five (5) flights. download.py used to throw:

  • Error: could not determine number of output files generated by tbmconv but now that download.py is smart enough to try to use cosconvert on files that fail with tbmconv, it prints
  • Warning: tbmconv failed on G00136, file may not be a TBM archive. Error: Number of files contained in the COS-blocked file G00136 (2) is less than what was recorded in the tape log (5), skipping file.

     

    The tapelog has this note:

  • This COS-blocked bitfile was archived directly from the master 1/2" tape on 22 July 1999 but was subsequently unreadable by an old GENPRO tape-dump program, even though the data transferred from the tape without error.
