Shortname and Persistent ID are both unique dataset identifiers which are used in the PODAAC data hosting system to identify the dataset. Shortname is human readable and Persistent ID is for internal only. They are widely used in the PODAAC web service and data recipe scripts. The attached figure shows the Level 4 MUR SST dataset information page. The red circles indicate the locations of Shortname and Persistent ID respectively.
