POES-GOES Blended Sea Surface Temperature Products

The Center for Satellite Applications and Research, within NESDIS, has developed a SST estimation scheme which combines multi-satellite retrievals of sea surface temperature datasets available from polar orbiters, geostationary IR and microwave sensors into a single global analysis. This global SST ananlysis provide a daily gap free map of the foundation sea surface temperature at 0.1o spatial resolution. It will benefit the users from CoastWatch/CceanWatch, Coral Reef Watch, NCEP Ocean Prediction Center and NCEP EMC Ocean Modeling Branch, and other areas for improving operational analysis, generating SST analysis with high density data and improving the monitoring of small scale dynamic features in the coastal coral reef environment.
