NMC Climatological Monthly Mean Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) from JCOMM Products Bulletin at LDEO/IRI Climate Data LibraryEntry ID: LDEO_IGOSS_NMC_MONTHLYCLIMSST
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.
Data ... from the Joint World Meteorological
Organization/Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission Technical
Commision for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) Products
Bulletin Data Products. The organization was formally known as the
Integrated Global Ocean Services System (IGOSS) Data Products
