The PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the public release of the NASA JPL GHRSST Level-2P (L2P) VIIRS sea surface temperature (SST) version 2016.2 (v2016.2) dataset.
This dataset is produced by NASA’s Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) with technical support from Dr. Peter Minnett and his team at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) and reformatted at JPL PO.DAAC to be in compliance with the Group for High-Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Data Specification (GDS2). It provides daily global day and night coverage at 750 m spatial resolution, reporting in 6-minute granules in netCDF4 format.
The datasets are described and discoverable via the PO.DAAC dataset information pages. The dataset information pages also provide access to the technical documentation, including the SST algorithm ATBD, data reprocessing overview, and guidance on how to cite the data.
