ISLSCP II Sea Surface Temperature
Entry ID: ISLSCP_SEA_SURFACE_TEMP_980_1


Summary
Abstract: Sea surface temperature (SST) is an important indicator of the state of the earth climate system as well as a key variable in the coupling between the atmosphere and the ocean. Accurate knowledge of SST is essential for climate monitoring, prediction and research. It is also a key surface boundary condition for numerical weather prediction and for other atmospheric simulations using atmospheric ... View entire text
