Monthly Pacific Ocean Sea Temperature

| DOI: 10.5065/28ZM-VF31

Monthly-mean Pacific sea-surface temperature analyses for 1949 to 1962 were compiled by the U.S. Bureau of Commercial Fisheries from observations obtained from the National Weather Records Center. Early years contained about 5000 observations per month, and that number increased to 15,000 by the end of the period. The grid covers the global area north of 20 south latitude.

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.
