NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Ocean Near Surface Atmospheric Properties, 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 Near Surface Atmospheric Properties. Evaluation the near-surface atmospheric temperature, humidity, and wind in comparison to similar values at the sea surface describe essential aspects of the air-sea exchange. The Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I), a passive microwave sensor, along with the sea surface temperature CDR provide this data after application of a combination of statistical techniques using neural networks and diurnal warming parameterizations. From these data, the near-surface fluxes of evaporation/latent heat and sensible heat calculations provide the CDR final record on a 3-hourly 0.25 degree resolution grid over the global ice-free oceans.

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. For a complete description of use limitations for this CDR, see Section 6, Assumptions and Limitations, in the respective Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document. Flags indicate whether the values are the retrieved value or an interpolated value.
