Public Release of the GHRSST WindSat L3U Sea Surface Temperature (SST) dataset version 7.0.1 from Remote Sensing System (REMSS)

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

The PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the release of the version 7.0.1 WindSat Level 3U (uncollated) Sea Surface Temperature (SST) dataset from Remote Sensing System (REMSS).  This dataset contains global near daily-coverage Level 3U SST with 25 km spatial resolution. The data files are in NetCDF4 format, in compliance with the Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Data Processing Specification version 2 (GDS2).   SST is one of the key products of WindSat Space-borne Polarimetric Microwave Radiometer system produced by REMSS.  More information on the new dataset can be found here: http://www.remss.com/missions/windsat
