Mediterranean Sea Ultra High Resolution SST L4 Analysis 0.01 deg Resolution
DOI10.5067/GHOUH-4GM20
Short NameOISST_UHR_NRT-GOS-L4-MED-v2.0
DescriptionCNR MED Sea Surface Temperature provides daily gap-free maps (L4) at 0.01 deg. x 0.01deg. horizontal resolution over the Mediterranean Sea. The data are obtained from infra-red measurements collected by satellite radiometers and statistical interpolation. It is the CMEMS sea surface temperature nominal operational product for the Mediterranean sea.
