Jones, M.D. Keller, 1999: A global database of sea surface dimethylsulfide (DMS) measurements and a simple model to predict sea surface DMS as a function of latitude, longitude and month. Global Biogeochem. Cycles, 13, 399-444.
  • Dimethylsulfide (DMS) measurements (15748 samples) made in the surface global oceans during 1972-1998 are given as raw data samples, along with the associated environmental data data at the time of data collection, and as 1-degree by 1-degree global objectively analyzed grids. The grids are for both a monthly climatology (12 monthly grids), and an overall annual mean.
