        abstract:  This accession contains a global, 4km daily sea surface temperature climatology derived from harmonic analysis of the AVHRR Pathfinder Version 5.0 and 5.1 sea surface temperature time series data for 1982-2008. The climatology is available as 366 separate files, each representing one day in a climatological year. The files are in netCDF-4 and fully comply with the GHRSST Data Specification 2.0 for Level 4 products. In addition to climatological sea surface temperature, each file contains standard deviation, sea ice concentration, sea ice concentration error, and land mask information. This accession also includes a 'classic', or mean, daily sea surface temperature climatology derived from the same Pathfinder time series data. This climatology was used to gap-fill the harmonic climatology, and provided the standard deviation information. It is available as 366 separate files in Hierarchical Data Format Version 4 (HDF4). In some ice-dominated high-latitude areas, the harmonic climatology is poorly constrained due to uneven distribution throughout the year of the valid measurements. For example, at 67.5S, 73W near the Antarctic coast, temperatures estimated in the harmonic climatology reach almost 40C. In these regions, the classic, averaged climatological values may be more reliable. Associated 5-day and monthly harmonic climatologies are archived at NODC under accessions 0071182 and 0075098, respectively.
        purpose:  To provide daily day-night combined climatologies of SST with high accuracy and high spatial resolution.

        supplementalInformation:  The procedure used to generate this daily harmonic climatology can be broken down into two primary components: 1. Harmonic analysis of time series data The harmonic climatology is created by fitting to a time series of SST data at each pixel a cosine function containing both annual and semi-annual components: SST = A * cos(2pi*t + B) + C * cos(4pi*t + D) + E The constants A and B correspond to the annual amplitude and annual phase, respectively. The constants C and D correspond to the semi-annual amplitude and phase. The constant E is the long term mean at that pixel. The input time series consists of pentad (5-day) averages of best-quality data (quality flag 7) only for 1982-2008. These data are archived by NODC in separate yearly accessions and are available online at https://data.nodc.noaa.gov/opendap/pathfinder/Version5.0_CloudScreened/5day/FullRes/. To create a gap-free data set for analysis, median spatial fill routines are applied to each 5-day global SST average in the time series. Using a curve-fitting tool in Matlab (lsqcurvefit.m), the cosine function is fit to the SST time series and the five harmonic constants are calculated. Note: If fewer than 100 good observations are available for a given pixel, the amplitudes (A and C) are set to zero, phases (B and D) set to one, and the long term mean (E) is set to the mean at that pixel. 2. Application of harmonic parameters The five harmonic constants can then be plugged into the cosine function to solve for sea surface temperature at any temporal resolution. In this case, the constants are applied at a daily resolution to calculate sea surface temperature for 366 days in a climatological year. For pixels missing SST values, where the harmonic analysis failed to converge to a solution, median spatial fill routines are applied. Any remaining pixels with missing values after median filling are filled using SST values from the classic climatology. File-naming convention for daily harmonic climatology files: [0000][MMDD][HHMMSS]-NODC-L4_GHRSST-SSTskin-AVHRR_Pathfinder-PFV5.0_Daily_Climatology_1982_2008_DayNightCombined-v02.0-fv[##.#].nc 0000 - representative year of analysis (climatological year) MMDD - representative month and day of analysis, e.g. 0630 for June 30 of the climatological year HHMMSS - representative time (6-digit hour, minute and second) of analysis. All files use value "200000" to represent 8 PM, the midpoint of the approximate AVHRR "day" based on an average equator-crossing time of 2 PM. ##.# - file version, e.g. 01.0

                description:  NOAA created the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) by merging NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), and National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC), including the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC), per the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, Public Law 113-235. NCEI launched publicly on April 22, 2015.

            description:  Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer-2 The AVHRR-2 is a multi purpose imaging instrument used for global measurement of cloud cover, sea surface temperature, ice, snow and vegetation cover and characteristics. This instrument was initially carried on NOAA-7 (launched June 1981) and was last flown on NOAA-14 which was decommissioned in 2005. This 5-channel radiometer covering 2 visible and 3 thermal infrared between 0.63 and 12.0 micrometers, has an instantaneous footprint of 1.1 km at the sub satellite point.

            description:  Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer-3 The AVHRR-3 is a six channel scanning radiometer providing 3 solar channels in the visible-near infrared region and 3 thermal infrared channels. The AVHRR-3 has two one-micrometer wide channels between 10.3 and 12.5 micrometers. This latest version of AVHRR was first carried on NOAA-15 launched in May 1998 and subsequently in all current NOAA and MetOp platforms. Measuring the same view, this array of diverse wavelengths, after processing, permits multi spectral analysis for more precisely defining hydrologic, oceanographic, and meteorological parameters. Comparison of data from two channels is often used to observe features or measure various environmental parameters. The three channels operating entirely within the infrared band are used to detect the heat radiation from and hence, the temperature of land, water, sea surfaces, and the clouds above them.
