Summary
Abstract: The monthly optimum interpolation (OI) fields are derived by a linear
interpolation of the weekly OI fields to daily fields then averaging
the daily values over a month. The monthly fields are in the same
format and spatial resolution as the weekly fields.

The anomalies (SSTA) are computed from these monthly fields.
