GHRSST: Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature

The Group for High-Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (SST; GHRSST) provides a new generation of global high-resolution (<10km) SST products to the operational oceanographic, meteorological, climate and general scientific community. The products are provided at a variety of processing levels including "gap-free" global grids. Each SST grid point must have associated with it six associated fields that allow users to assess quality.

Key Strengths:

  • Very high resolution(s)
  • Quality information on a grid point basis

Key Limitations:

  • Short time series
