14 km Sea Surface Temperature for North America, 1986 - present (NODC Accession 0099042)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This product presents local sea surface temperatures (degrees C). It is a composite gridded-image derived from 8-km resolution SST observations collected by Advanced High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) and HIRS (High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder) instruments onboard NOAA and Metop-A satellites. It is generated every 48 hours for North America. SST is defined as the skin temperature of the ocean surface water. Data may be output as netCDF and other formats (GIF, ASCII, spreadsheet). The pixel resolution is .125 x .125 degrees.
