NMC Weekly Mean Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) from JCOMM ProductsBulletin at LDEO/IRI Climate Data Library

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The OI sea surface temperature (SST) analysis is produced weekly
(Sunday to Saturday) on a one-degree grid. The analysis uses in situ
and satellite SST's plus SST's simulated by sea-ice cover. Before the
analysis is computed, the satellite data is adjusted for biases using
the method of Reynolds (1988) and Reynolds and Marsico (1993). A
description of the OI analysis can be found in Reynolds and ... View entire text
