GHRSST Level 4 MUR North America Regional Foundation Sea Surface Temperature AnalysisEntry ID: JPL-L4UHfnd-NCAMERICA-MUR
Abstract: A Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Level 4 sea surface temperature analysis produced as a retrospective dataset at the JPL Physical Oceanography DAAC using wavelets as basis functions in an optimal interpolation approach on a regional 0.011 degree grid over the oceans off North and Central America (62N- 20S, 165W - 30W). The Multiscale Ultrahigh Resolution (MUR) L4 ... analysis is based upon nighttime GHRSST L2P skin and subskin SST observations from several instruments such as: the NASA Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS (AMSRE), and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the NASA Aqua and Terra platforms. The ice concentration data are from the archives at the EUMETSAT Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility (OSI SAF) High Latitude Processing Center.
This data set is funded by the NASA MEaSUREs program (http://earthdata.nasa.gov/our-community/community-data-system-progr...), and created by a team led by Dr. Toshio Chin from JPL.
