¿What is the meaning of “sc_only mode” in SEN2COR?

Hi all,
¿What is the meaning of “sc_only mode” in SEN2COR? I had installed the Sen2Cor (sen2cor-2.3.0) and Python2.7 (win10/64-bit), but when I try to start processing 10m resolution I encounter the following error:

I appreciate any help on how to solve this error.

-sc_only means that sen2cor will only do the scene classification which identifies different types of clouds as well as water, land and vegetation. This takes less time than the radiometrical correction of each band (the actual purpose of sen2cor).

Unfortunately, I cannot read the error message because your screenshot is too small.

Hi Abraun. Thank you very much for your quick response. I am very sorry for the screenshot; I hope that looks a little better. Anyway the error read: “No scene classification processing for 10 m resolution in sc_only mode”).

well this is your answer :slight_smile:

Scene classification is only performed with 60m and 20m resolution.

Sorry, then how can I get an atmospherically corrected image at 10 m resolution?

by leaving out the --sc_only parameter.
It literally says ‘do only the classification, not the atmospherical correction’

L2A_process --resolution 10 directory

Hi again, I have not been able to find “–sc_only parameter” in L2A_process.py. It more like that I’ve found is this screenshot from L2A_process tile.py.
I feel completely messed up.

just don’t enter it as an argument:

No need to adjust the script.

Thank you very much ABraun.

Hello congosto.
Is what your problem is solved?, what you have done?, I have the same problem too.
thank you

I just followed ABraun’s instructions (thank you, again). Open Window command line (DOS) and execute L2A_process. I called the command from inside my product directory:
L2A_Process S2A_OPER_PRD_MSIL1C_PDMC_20150630T084936_R062_V20150627T103515_20150627T103515.SAFE --resolution=10
That was all
