Ensemble Median Sea Surface Temperature for 29/01/2019.
Source: www.ghrsst.org.; Each day the GHRSST Multi-product Ensemble ( GMPE ) experiment, coordinated by the GHRSST Inter-Calibration TAG (IC-TAG), produces a median SST map and associated standard deviation map using SST analysis data collected over the last 24 hour period (i.e. yesterday). Thus, the nominal analysis time for the GMPE median ensemble SST is 12:00Z for the previous day (i.e., T-1). The image data sets are updated each day ~13:30Z. The GMPE median ensemble SST map is computed as a median average using a variety of GHRSST L4 analysis products after their differing analysis grids have been homogenised by area averaging onto a standard 0.5° lat/lon grid. Although several analyses provide greater coverage (such as large lakes) the median-ensemble SST coverage is restricted by the use of the OSTIA analysis land mask. The GMPE median ensemble SST is currently derived using the following inputs: Met Office OSTIA SST analysis, NCEP RTG_SST_HR SST analysis, NAVOCEANO NAVO K10 SST observations, JMA MGDSST SST analysis, RSS RSS MW Fusion SST analysis, RSS RSS MW+IR Fusion SST analysis, FNMOC GHRSST-PP SST and sea Ice analysis, Ifremer ODYSSEA SST analysis, NOAA AVHRR OI (Reynolds), Meterological Service of Canada (CMC) 1/3 degree SST analysis, BMRC GAMSSA SST analysis.
