- Global Sea Ice and SST (GISST) Analyses, from the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research
NOTE: The GISST time series will be discontinued on February 2003.
HadISST [http://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds277.3/], also from the
Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research, is a superior
product. We recommend the usage of HadISST over GISST.
Monthly long-term global SST and sea ice analysis. In situ sea
surface observations and satellite derived estimates at the sea
surface are included in the analysis. SST bucket corrections have
been applied to gridded fields from 1871 through 1941. And a blend
of satellite AVHRR (for SST), SSM/I (for ice), and observations are
used in the modern periods.
Access to GISST 2.3B has proprietary restrictions. Users must
register with the authors before receiving the data. This is easy to
do. Simply print a copy of the registration form
[http://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds277.2/docs/restr_form]) and follow
the FAX instructions. When this is completed contact Steve Worley
(NCAR) [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] and the data will be made available.
