Overview

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.

OSTIA

The section shows anomalies for the OSTIA SST analysis.

latest OSTIA -NCEP

OSTIA Anomalies compared to NCEP climatology

latest OSTIA - Pathfinder

OSTIA Anomalies compared to Pathfinder climatology

FOAM

The section shows anomalies for the FOAM ocean model compared to climatology for the surface, and near-surface ocean.

latest FOAM 1 deg - NCEP

FOAM 1 degree analysis compared to NCEP OIv2 SST climatology.

latest FOAM 1 deg - Pathfinder

FOAM 1 degree analysis compared to Pathfinder v5.0 SST climatology.

latest FOAM 1 deg - Levitus 98

FOAM 1 degree analysis compared to Levitus 98 SST climatology.

latest FOAM 1 deg - ENACT

FOAM 1 degree analysis at surface (~0-10m) compared to ENACT climatology.

latest FOAM 1 deg - ENACT

FOAM 1 degree analysis at 0-30m depth compared to ENACT climatology.

latest FOAM 1 deg - ENACT

FOAM 1 degree analysis at 30-60m depth compared to ENACT climatology.

latest FOAM 1 deg - ENACT

FOAM 1 degree analysis at 60-90m depth compared to ENACT climatology.

latest FOAM 1 deg - ENACT

FOAM 1 degree analysis at 90-150m depth compared to ENACT climatology.

Mixed Layer Depth Analysis

This section shows the mixed layer depth given by the FOAM model, which can be an aid to interpreting the anomalies above.

latest FOAM 1 deg Mixed layer depths

FOAM 1 degree mixed layer depths.

Analysis comparison

This section shows differences between several SST analysis products.

latest OSTIA - NWP sst

OSTIA Anomalies compared to NWP SST analysis.

latest OSTIA - FOAM 1 deg

OSTIA Anomalies compared to FOAM 1 degree analysis

Climatology comparison

The section shows differences between the three climatologies used.
