Global Ocean OSTIA Sea Surface Temperature and Sea Ice Reprocessed


For the Global Ocean- the OSTIA global foundation Sea Surface Temperature product provides daily gap-free maps of:
Foundation Sea Surface Temperature at 0.05x 0.05 degrees horizontal resolution, using in-situ and satellite data from both infra-red and micro-wave radiometers.
  • Sea Surface Temperature anomaly from the Pathfinder climatology at 0.25 x 0.25 degrees horizontal resolution.
  • Estimates of SST bias in each of the satellites contributing to the OSTIA SST analysis at 0.25 x 0.25 degrees horizontal resolution.
  • Monthly and seasonal means of the daily Sea Surface Temperature product at 0.25 x 0.25 degrees horizontal resolution are also available.
  • This product provides the foundation Sea Surface Temperature which is the surface temperature free of diurnal variability.
