NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Sea Surface Temperature - WHOI, Version 2

The NOAA Ocean Surface Bundle (OSB) Climate Data Record (CDR) consist of three parts: sea surface temperature, near-surface atmospheric properties, and heat fluxes. This portion of the OSB CDR is the NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Sea Surface Temperature - WHOI. The SST data are found through modeling the diurnal variability in combination with AVHRR observations of sea surface temperature. The data cover a time period from January 1988 to present at a 3-hourly, quarter-degree resolution.

Flux calculations may also be in error during very high winds due to errors in the bulk flux model. Flags indicate whether the values are the retrieved value or an interpolated value. For a complete description of use limitations for this CDR, see Section 6, Assumptions and Limitations, in the respective Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document."]
