4 km AVHRR Pathfinder v5.0 Global Day-Night Sea Surface Temperature Monthly and Yearly Averages, 1985-2009 (NODC Accession 0077816)

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

This data set contains a set of monthly and yearly global day-night sea surface temperature averages, derived from the AVHRR Pathfinder Version 5 sea surface temperature cloudscreened data set (http://pathfinder.nodc.noaa.gov) in GeoTIFF format. The AVHRR Pathfinder SST data sets provide the longest, most accurate, and highest resolution consistently-reprocessed SST climate data record from the AVHRR sensor series. These data files were produced to facilitate the utilization of high resolution Pathfinder v5.0 sea surface temperature data within geographic information system (GIS) software.

These day-night combined monthly and yearly means were produced from cloud-screened day-night monthly full resolution files of Pathfinder SST data from 1985-2009. The data are available for download at http://accession.nodc.noaa.gov/0077816 or through the NODC Geoportal at http://geoid:8080/geoportal/catalog/main/home.page. The original .HDF files are archived at the National Oceanographic Data Center under separate accession numbers. The GeoTIFF SST averages were assigned projection GCS_WGS_1984. In addition, browse images in PNG format with an associated KML file for each year are included with these data as well as detailed metadata.
