Sea Surface Temperature



The real-time sea surface temperature dataset, updated daily, is provided by the NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research. The interaction between the ocean and the atmosphere is one that scientists are constantly researching, and the temperature of the sea surface is a key factor in those interactions. The SST images are data merged from several different satellites By collecting data from multiple satellites, high resolution, accurate, cloud-free composites can be generated on a daily basis.
