The Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature Project (GHRSST) has been established to give international focus and coordination to the development of a new generation of global, multi-sensor, high-resolution near realtime SST products.

The GHRSST brings together international space agencies, research institutes, universities, and government agencies to collectively address the scientific, logistical and managerial challenges posed by creating the SST data products and services within the Project.
In the GHRSST shared processing model, site specific Regional Data Assembly Centers (RDACs) in the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia have the responsibility for producing the standard netCDF formatted level 2 preprocessed (L2P) data products for a wide variety of satellite sensors. Using merging algorithms, high resolution level 4 multi-sensor products will also be produced.

Following a period of preparation, the Project has now implemented a system that will provide a demonstration of the operational advantages and value of including high resolution near realtime SST data sets in climate research and ocean modeling.
