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 climatological monthly mean SST (January-December) was blended
from ship, buoy, and bias-corrected satellite data from 1950-1979.
