Yearly and year-season upper ocean temperature anomaly fields, 1948-1998
Entry ID: NODC_UOT_4898

Abstract: This atlas describes the computation of upper ocean thermal anomaly
fields for 1948-1998 from the surface to 1000 meters depth. It also
presents the interannual standard deviation of seasonal temperature
anomaly fields for the world ocean for this period. For the region from
the surface through 200 meters, the equatorial and tropical regions of
the world ocean exhibit the largest standard ... View entire text
