East Asian Seas Regional Climatology Version 2.0 from 1804 to 2014 (NODC Accession 0123300)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The East Asian Seas Regional Climatology Version 2.0 is an update to the preliminary version released in May 2012. This update includes new temperature and salinity data spanning the period from 1804 through 2013. The climatology was recalculated based on the new data received.

The East Asian Seas Regional Climatology is a set of objectively analyzed climatological fields of temperature and salinity at standard depth levels in the East Asian Marginal Seas. These fields were calculated for annual, seasonal, and monthly time periods on one-degree, quarter-degree, and tenth-degree latitude-longitude grids and are based on 1.2 million temperature profiles and 0.6 million salinity profiles.
