GHRSST_NCDC_GLOB_L4_AVHRR_OI_SST:1Entry ID: GHRSST_NCDC_GLOB_L4_AVHRR_OI_SST
Abstract: A GHRSST L4 sea surface temperature analysis produced daily at the NOAA National Climatic Data Center using optimal interpolation from AVHRR Pathfinder Version 5 data (http://pathfinder.nodc.noaa.gov) (when available, otherwise operational AVHRR data are used) and in situ ship and buoy observations. A second similar product is available that also includes AMSR-E data from June 2002 onward. To ... avoid a jump in the analysis and to provide the longest, most consistent time series, this product uses only the AVHRR Pathfinder and in situ data. The OI analysis is a daily average SST that is bias adjusted using a spatially smoothed 7-day in situ SST average. Both day and night satellite fields are independently adjusted. More information is available at http://www.ncdc.noaa.

PO.DAAC, through the GHRSST Global Data Assembly Center (http://ghrsst.jpl.nasa.gov) acts as a global distribution node for all GHRSST L4 products in conjunction with the NOAA Longterm Stewardship and Reanalysis Facility (LTSRF; http://ghrsst.nodc.noaa.gov).More information on GHRSST can be found here: http://www.ghrsst-pp.org/.
