Physical Oceanography Division - NOAA/AOML TCHP. Sea surface temperature (SST) provides a measure of the surface ocean conditions, however no information about the subsurface ocean thermal structure (approximately the upper 50 m of the ocean) can be derived from SST alone.
For instance, it is known that the oceanic skin temperature erodes when the sea surface is affected by strong winds, creating a well-mixed layer that can reach depths of several tens of meters. Moreover, warm ocean features, mainly anticyclonic rings and eddies, are characterized by a deepening of the isotherms towards their centers with a markedly different temperature and salinity structure than the surrounding waters.
Several studies have shown that observations of sea surface height (SSH) are strongly correlated with the thermal structure of the upper ocean (e.g. Goni et al. 1996; Gilson et al. 1998; Mayer et al. 2001; Willis et al. 2004). The sea height anomaly (SHA) represents the deviation of the sea height with respect to its mean. Sea Temperature Water Temperatures. Sea Surface Temperature - IMCS Coastal Ocean Observation Lab. CCAR Ocean Data Viewers. Cdas-sflux_sst_atl_1.png (1024×715) Monthly Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly. This map displays monthly sea surface temperature anomalies for the globe.
Monthly sea surface temperature anomalies are calculated with respect to the 1971-2000 climatology. Yellow to red colors on the map indicate areas where sea surface temperature for the month shown is above the climatological value for that month of the year, and blue shades indicate where sea surface temperature is below normal. Shading starts at +/- 0.5°C. Anomalies are also contoured at an interval of 0.5°C. Global Sea Surface Temperature Data Sets / TCC. We provide 1x1 degree resolution GPV datas from January 1891 up to the latest month.
