NMC Monthly Mean Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) from JCOMM Products Bulletin at LDEO/IRI Climate Data Library

Abstract: The monthly optimum interpolation (OI) fields are derived by a linear
interpolation of the weekly OI fields to daily fields then averaging
the daily values over a month. The monthly fields are in the same
format and spatial resolution as the weekly fields.

The OI sea surface temperature (SST) analysis is produced weekly on a
one-degree grid. The analysis uses in situ and satellite SST's plus
