Using SubsetOp.getTargetProduct() to clip S3 SLSTR LST data


When using SubsetOp.getTargetProduct() to clip S3 SLSTR LST data an “RuntimeError: org.esa.snap.core.gpf.OperatorException”

Here is a code:

import snappy
from snappy import ProductIO

sen3_in_filename = “H:/sentinel-3/kotelny_island/S3A_SL_2_LST____20180829T031813_20180829T045912_20180830T094318_6059_035_118______LN2_O_NT_003.SEN3”

sen3_out_filename = “H:/sentinel-3/kotelny_island/test.tif”

product = ProductIO.readProduct(sen3_in_filename)

SubsetOp = snappy.jpy.get_type(‘org.esa.snap.core.gpf.common.SubsetOp’)
WKTReader = snappy.jpy.get_type(‘’)

lat_min = 73
lat_max = 77
lon_min = 133
lon_max = 152

geom = WKTReader().read(“POLYGON(({} {}, {} {}, {} {}, {} {}, {} {}))”.format(lon_min, lat_min, lon_min, lat_max, lon_max, lat_max, lon_max, lat_min, lon_min, lat_min))

op = SubsetOp()

sub_product = op.getTargetProduct()
ProductIO.writeProduct(sub_product, sen3_out_filename, ‘GeoTIFF’)

then error appears:

sub_product = op.getTargetProduct()
RuntimeError: org.esa.snap.core.gpf.OperatorException

When I use similar code for SMOS L1/L2 data (for example SM_REPB_MIR_SCLF1C_20110801T151944_20110801T161257_620_183_1.DBL). Everything works fine. New raster is created, clipped and saved.

I have read, that maybe it is because of an old version of snappy where was a problem with S3 data when data were close to poles. I have updated SNAP Desktop application. Then create new snappy package using this command:

“C:\Program Files\snap\bin\snappy-conf.bat” “D:\OSGeo4W64\bin\python.exe” “D:\OSGeo4W64\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages”

Just in case I deleted .snap in user directory and snappy folder in python lib directory (in my case “D:\OSGeo4W64\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages”).

When I use SubsetOp without op.setGeoRegion(geom), new raster is created.

Maybe I have still some old version of snappy? When I type ‘pip list’ there is a ‘snappy (2.6.1)’. But I did not use pip to install snappy.

Is there some idea where could be a problem? Or what is the proper way of update snappy?



Well, finally I have successfully updated snappy to version 6.0.4 (as written after ‘pip list’ command). But a problem is still the same…


It looks like the same problem as here - Work with data S3A_SL_2_LST in snap. If I set values of longitude min and max as from image boundary new subset image is created and saved.


Yes, I think it’s the same bug. It will be fixed in the next release.


Do you have an estimate on when the new version will be released. A rough estimate would also be useful?
