Entry ID: OSDPD0047

Abstract: This tape contains a monthly archive of 4 satellite-derived SST field
accumulation files 1) 500-km global field at 5 X 5 degree latitude/longitude
resolution between 70S and 70N. This field is produced daily by averaging
gridpoint temperatures in the 1 degree latitude/longitude SST field file; 2)
50-km regional field at 0.5 X 0.5 degree resolution within the region 5N-53N
and 100W-52W. This field ... View entire text
