AVHRR CoastWatch Gulf of Mexico Regional Node Data, May 1991-March 2004 (NODC Accession 0121317)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

The sea surface temperature (SST) products were derived from NOAA's Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) for the coastal United States and created by NOAA CoastWatch Program. CoastWatch started with only POES/AVHRR SST data for the East Coast, but later added more regional nodes of Alaska, Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, Hawaii, Great Lakes, Northeast, Southeast and West Coast. The products provided here are in the original CoastWatch Format, which does not apply to the SST data currently created. The new data is now provided in HDF format, which is available through the NODC and the NOAA Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS).
