SQUAM objective

- Serve as a community tool for near real-time monitoring of major global SST products

What SQUAM does?

- Monitors global L2 & L3 SSTs w.r.t. L4 fields & in situ data

- Intercompares and validates various global L4 SST products

Methodology

- Global QC and statistical checks for self- and cross-consistency using maps, histograms, time series, and dependencies of SST differences
