NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Ocean Heat Fluxes, Version 2

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The NOAA Ocean Surface Bundle (OSB) Climate Data Record (CDR) consist of three parts: sea surface temperature; near-surface wind speed, air temperature, and specific humidity; sensible and latent heat fluxes. This portion of the OSB CDR is the NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Ocean Heat Fluxes. The OSB CDR parameters of near-surface atmospheric and sea surface temperature are used to calculate the latent and sensible heat fluxes from a neural-network emulator of the TOGA-COARE Bulk Air-Sea Flux Algorithm. The data cover a time period from January 1988 - Present at a 3-hourly, quarter-degree resolution.

Licence Estimations of the humidity and temperature gradients may be underestimated in very extreme conditions. Flux calculations may also be in error during very high winds due to errors in the bulk flux model. Flags indicate whether the values are the retrieved value or an interpolated value. For a complete description of use limitations for this CDR, see Section 6, Assumptions and Limitations, in the respective Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document.
