NOAA Smith and Reynolds Extended Reconstructed Sea Surface Temperature (ERSST) Image

Thursday, March 22, 2018

The Smith & Reynolds Extended Reconstructed Sea Surface Temperature (ERSST) Level 4 dataset produced by NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) provides a historical reconstruction of monthly global ocean surface temperatures and temperature anomalies over a 2 degree spatial grid since 1854 from in-situ observations based on a consistent statistical methodology that accounts for uneven sampling distributions over time and related observational biases. The most recent version 5 of ERSST can accessed by visiting here: https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/REYNOLDS_NCDC_L4_MONTHLY_V5.
