Sea Surface Temperature - Pathfinder

Sample image of NOAA CDR Sea Surface Temperature Pathfinder product; it depicts average global sea surface temperatures in Celsius, using 4 kilometer resolution.

This dataset provides a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of Sea Surface Temperature.

The AVHRR Pathfinder Sea Surface Temperature CDR is a collection of global, twice-daily (Day and Night) 4km sea surface temperature (SST) data produced by the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). L3C is generated with measurements combined from a single instrument into a space-time grid. The dataset was computed with data from the AVHRR instruments on board NOAA's polar orbiting satellite series using an entirely modernized system based on SeaDAS (version 6.4).

Principal Investigator: Xuepeng Tom Zhao, NOAA NCEI
