Kaplan Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Indices from LDEO/IRI Climate Data Library
Entry ID: LDEO_KAPLAN_INDICES

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set includes indices of sea surface temperature (SST)
anomalies from Kaplan, et al (1998) and Cane, et al (1997).
These data sets were analyzed using the Optimal Smoother (OS)
analysis of MOHSST5, a version of the GOSTA dataset from the
U.K. Meteorological Office.

For each index there is the straight average of the values
available in the MOHSST5 dataset; the value corresponding to
the ... View entire text
