This page show the differences between last weeks sea surface temperature (SST) and multiyear means for the same time of year (climatology), as well as differences between current analyses.
In the following figures, the contour intervals are at 0.5 degrees C. The zero contour is bold.
The section shows anomalies for the OSTIA SST analysis.
OSTIA Anomalies compared to NCEP climatology
OSTIA Anomalies compared to Pathfinder climatology
The section shows anomalies for the FOAM ocean model compared to climatology for the surface, and near-surface ocean.
FOAM 1/4 degree analysis compared to NCEP OIv2 SST climatology.
FOAM 1/4 degree analysis compared to Pathfinder v5.0 SST climatology.
FOAM 1/4 degree analysis compared to Levitus 98 SST climatology.
This section shows differences between several SST analysis products.
OSTIA Anomalies compared to FOAM 1/12 degree (North Atlantic) analysis
OSTIA Anomalies compared to FOAM 1/4 degree (global) analysis
This section shows differences between the three climatologies used.
