North Pacific Nearshore Sea Surface Temperature (SST) shapefile format (1981-2009)

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

The Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data of the nearshore region of the North Pacific show temperature ranges in degrees C using points whose locations correspond to the centroids of AVHRR Pathfinder version 5 monthly, global, 4 km data set (PFSST V50). The pathfinder rasters are available from the Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC), hosted by NASA JPL. The data points in this dataset lie within a 20 km buffer from the GSHHS (Global Self-consistent, Hierarchical, High-resolution Shoreline) coastline. The GSHHS vector data are available from the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC). Furthermore, each point in the SST dataset is categorized by the ecoregion in which it is located. This classification is based on the Marine Ecosystems Of the World (MEOW) developed and distributed by The Nature Conservancy. These data have been QA'd in that we have selected only data values with associated quality flags of 4-7. No data and bad data are given the NoData value = -9999.
