Sea Surface Temperature Images

sea surface temperature image

The images listed below are color enhanced versions of the SST fields we archive at the National Climatic Data Center. Requests for this retrospective data should be directed to NCDC.

Selected SST fields (dating back to February 99) are now available in netCDF, and ASCII text format (as well as zoomable color images) on the Comprehense Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS) website.
