A Quality-Controlled Sea Surface Temperature Analysis

| DOI: 10.5065/XKJF-SV65

The U.K. Met Office acquired a copy of more than 31 million sea-surface temperature observations from the U.S. National Climatic Data Center. Because SST observations had low accuracy and high scatter, the Met Office applied a quality control method that was developed within their Synoptic Climatology Branch. The resulting dataset here is a gridded monthly mean analysis at 5-degree resolution for the Northern Hemisphere.

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.
