GHRSST Level 4 MW_OI Global Foundation Sea Surface Temperature analysis (GDS version 2)

MWIR optimum interpolated SST data set

browse graphicPreview graphic
A Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) global Level 4 sea surface temperature analysis produced daily on a 0.25 degree grid at Remote Sensing Systems. This product uses optimal interpolation (OI) from microwave (MW) sensors including the NASA Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS (AMSRE), the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission Microwave Imager (TMI), the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) onboard the GCOM-W1 satellite, and WindSat operates on the Coriolis satellite. The through-cloud capabilities of microwave radiometers provide a valuable picture of global sea surface temperature (SST). This analysis does not use any in situ SST data such as drifting buoy SST.
