Animation of the weekly (8day) daytime spatially gridded (L3) global sea surface skin temperature (SST) at 4.63 km spatial resolution from the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) onboard the Terra satellite. The black pixels indicate missing data due to cloud during that 8day period . The dataset was produced by the NASA Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) with science algorithm developed by Peter Minnett and his team at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS). The dataset can be accessed from the PO.DAAC Portal at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/MODIS_TERRA_L3_SST_THERMAL_8DAY_4KM_DAYTIME_V2019.0 (DOI:10.5067/MODST-8D4D9).
