A Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST): UKM-OSTIA Level 4 Version 1

UKMO/OSTIA GHRSST Level 4 ~5km (1/20 degree)

A Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Level 4 sea surface temperature analysis produced daily on an operational basis at the UK Met Office using optimal interpolation (OI) on a global 0.054 degree grid. The Operational Sea Surface Temperature and Sea Ice Analysis (OSTIA) analysis uses satellite data from sensors that include the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), the Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR), the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI), the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS (AMSRE), the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission Microwave Imager (TMI), and in situ data from drifting and moored buoys. This analysis has a highly smoothed SST field and was specifically produced to support SST data assimilation into Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models.
L4 -- Level 4 Analyzed SST (Fundation SST) Data sets created from the analysis of lower level data that results in gridded, gapfree products. SST data generated from multiple sources of satellite data using optimal interpolation are an example of L4 GHRSST products.
