Gulf of Mexico Regional Climatology (NCEI Accession 0123320)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

The Gulf of Mexico Regional Climatology is a set of objectively analyzed climatological fields of temperature, salinity, oxygen, phosphate, silicate, and nitrate at standard depth levels. Climatologies were calculated for annual, seasonal, and monthly time periods on a one-degree for all variables, and for temperature and salinity on a quarter-degree and tenth-degree latitude-longitude grid for annual and seasonal time periods and are based on approximately 278,626 temperature profiles and 102,916 salinity profiles spanning the years of 1864 to 2012. The climatology is a project developed at the National Oceanographic Data Center (USA).
