Quality-controlled sea surface temperature, salinity and other measurements from the NCEI Global Thermosalinographs Database (NCEI-TSG)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This collection contains global in-situ sea surface temperature (SST), salinity (SSS) and other measurements from the NOAA NCEI Global Thermosalinographs Database (NCEI-TSG). Data were collected by thermosalinographs (TSG) from 1989 to the present from more than 300 platforms. These TSG data are from multiple data assembly centers, including the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS; TSG data from the Shipboard Automated Meteorological and Oceanographic System (SAMOS)), Institut français de recherche pour l'exploitation de la mer (IFREMER; English: French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea; TSG data from The Global Ocean Surface Underway Data (GOSUD)), Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratory (AOML-TSG data) and NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). When duplicate data were found with different resolution, the data with the highest sampling resolution were selected. All data were converted to common netCDF format, following the Climate and Forecast (CF) and Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD) conventions and following the NCEI netCDF 2.0 trajectory feature type. All data were processed using the same 11-step quality control procedures and criteria and flagged using a two-level flag system to provide a well-organized, uniformly quality-controlled TSG dataset for the user community.
