Monthly Mean SST Charts (1984-1998)

A satellite-only monthly mean time series of SST at 36 km resolution has been provided by Al Strong (ORA/ORAD) based on only nighttime SST satellite observations. These datasets, based on NESDIS's AVHRR data, have been accumulated into weekly means (U of Miami - RSMAS) and provided to NASA-JPL for distribution. Some SST monthly means are omitted due to contamination by volcanic aerosols (1981-1983 and some of 1991-1992 due to the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo).
