Summary
Abstract: [Source: NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory, Physical Sciences
Division, http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/ ]

The HadSST and NOAA OI SST datasets are used to compute Atlantic SST anomalies north of the equator. Anomalies are computed by month using the climotological time period 1951-2000. Both smoothed and unsmoothed data sets are available.
