Objectively Analyzed Air-Sea Fluxes (OAFlux) For Global Oceans, By Lisan Yu et al.

| DOI: 10.5065/0JDQ-FP94

This dataset includes the 3rd release of the global ocean-surface heat flux products. The OAFlux products are constructed from multiple data sources, an optimal blending of satellite retrievals and three atmospheric analyses. Daily fluxes are computed from the optimally estimated variables using the COARE bulk flux algorithm 3.0.

Monthly products are made from entire 49-year period, and daily products are available from 1985 onward. For further information, please visit the OAFlux Project Home Page.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
