Dataset: IMOS - SRS - SST - L3S - Single Sensor - 1 month - day time - Australia


Description

This is a single-sensor multi-satellite SSTskin product for 1 month of consecutive day-time periods, derived using observations from AVHRR instruments on all available NOAA polar-orbiting satellites. It is provided as a 0.02deg x 0.02deg cylindrical equidistant projected map over the region 70°E to 170°W, 20°N to 70°S. Each grid cell contains the 1 month average of all the highest available quality SSTs that overlap with that cell, weighted by the area of overlap. The diagram at https://help.aodn.org.au/satellite-data-product-information/ indicates where this product fits within the GHRSST suite of NOAA/AVHRR products. Matchups with buoy SST observations for the central date (adjusted to skin depths) indicate typical 2014 biases of < 0.3 degC and standard deviations of 0.7 degC. Refer to the IMOS SST products web page at http://imos.org.au/sstproducts.html and Beggs et al. (2013) at http://imos.org.au/sstdata_references.html for further information.
