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


Summary
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 Smith
(1994). The bias correction improves the large scale accuracy of the
OI. Examples of the effect of recent corrections is given by Reynolds
(1993).

For the more recent period, 1990-present, the in situ data were
obtained from radio messages carried on the Global Telecommunication
System. The satellite observations were obtained from operational data
produced by the National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information
Service (NESDIS)

During the period 1981-1989, the in situ data were obtained from the
Comprehensive Ocean Atmosphere Data Set (COADS) for the 1980s. These
data (see Slutz, et al., 1985, and Woodruff, et al., 1993) consist of
logbook and radio reports. The satellite data were obtained from
analyses of NESDIS data produced at the University of Miami's
Rosentiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences.

The OI analysis is done over all ocean areas. There is no analysis
over land. The land values are filled by a Cressman interpolation to
produce a complete grid for possible interpolation.

Data from the Joint World Meteorological
Organization/Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission Technical
Commision for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) Products
Bulletin Data Products. The organization was formally known as the
Integrated Global Ocean Services System (IGOSS) Data Products
Bulletin.
