SST, Pathfinder Ver 5.2 (L3C), Night, Global, 0.0417°, 1981-2012, Science Quality (1 Day Composite)

Nighttime measurements from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) Pathfinder Version 5.2 L3-Collated (L3C) sea surface temperature. This netCDF-4 file contains sea surface temperature (SST) data produced as part of the AVHRR Pathfinder SST Project. These data were created using Version 5.2 of the Pathfinder algorithm and the file is nearly but not completely compliant with the Global High-Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Data Specifications V2.0 (GDS2). The file does not encode time according to the GDS2 specifications, and the sses_bias and sses_standard_deviation variables are empty. Full compliance with GDS2 specifications will be achieved in the future Pathfinder Version 6. These data were created as a partnership between the University of Miami and the US NOAA/National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC).

2014-02-11 Files downloaded from to NOAA NMFS SWFSC ERD by . Aggregated with reference times from the dates in the file names. Removed other, misleading time values from the file names and the data files. Removed empty sses_bias and sses_standard_deviation variables. Fixed the incorrect add_offset and scale_factor for aerosol_dynamic_indicator in file from 1981 through 2000.
