    Sea surface temperature—the temperature of the water at the ocean surface—is an important physical attribute of the world’s oceans. The surface temperature of the world’s oceans varies mainly with latitude, with the warmest waters generally near the equato r and the coldest waters in the Arctic and. Technical Documentation: Sea Surface Temperature 1 Sea Surface Temperature Identification 1. Indicator Description This indicator describes global trends in sea surface temperature (SST) from to SST is a key indicator related to climate change because it describes conditions at .

Wood2 1Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA 2Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, NOAA, Seattle, WA, USA Highlights Sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in August were up to +4° C warmer than the August mean in regions of the Barents and Chukchi seas. In the Arctic Basin, spatial patterns of August SST .

    Ocean Temperature is a measure of the energy in the ocean due to the motion of molecules. Depending on the sensor, spaceborne measurements give us an unprecedented global measurement of ocean temperatures from approximately 10 µm below the surface to 1 mm depths using radiometers. The chart summarizes sea surface temperatures along the equator between ° W and ° W. The water temperature for each season is categorized as strongly cooler than normal (C+), weakly cooler (C-), neutral (N), weakly warmer (W-), or strongly warmer (W+).

In order to improve upon previous results, this study focuses on a period of 6 months (May to October, ) in which the full resolution (x km) satellite images are used to describe and study the variability of the sea surface temperature (SST) and circulation from meso- Author: Jason A.

The scale goes from -5 to +5 °C. Positive numbers mean the temperature is warmer than average; negative means cooler than average. Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is an important factor for weather forecasts and climate outlooks.

Where sea surface temperatures are relatively high, heat energy and moisture enter the atmosphere. Downwind of these warm areas, chances for precipitation are enhanced. Conversely, lower sea surface temperatures mean less evaporation. The darkest blue areas show sea surface temperatures as low as 28°F.

Sea ice, which can look like anything from a slushy mix of floating ice crystals to a solid surface of white, is usually present in these areas. Progressively lighter shades of blue show increasingly warmer temperatures, up to   Sea surface Sea-surface temperature book (SST) refers to the state of the uppermost ‘mixed’ layer of the ocean, typically only few tens of meters thick.

Knowledge of past SST variability is important as it helps us understand how the ocean behaves in times of climate change; it allows us to validate numerical climate models and assess the significance of current climate trends.

Ships and buoys have been recording sea surface temperatures, among many other parameters, for well over a hundred years.

Through international cooperation and sharing of data between nations, these data are compiled to make a global database of sea surface temperatures with a period of record going back to the middle of the 19th century.

The satellite dish on our roof allows us to see as far south as Puerto Rico, as far west as Nevada, and up to 65 degrees N latitude and 40 degrees W longitude. The images on the following pages have been calibrated to show sea surface temperatures.

Sea surface temperatures have a large influence on climate and weather. For example, every 3 to 7 years a wide swath of the Pacific Ocean along the equator warms by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius.

This warming is a hallmark of the climate pattern El Niño, which changes rainfall patterns around the globe. These sea surface temperature maps are based on observations by the MODIS sensors on NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites.

The satellites measure the temperature of the top millimeter of the ocean surface. In this map, the coolest waters appear in blue (approximately -2 degrees Celsius), and the warmest temperatures appear in pink-yellow ( Discover the best Sea Surface Temperature books and audiobooks.

A real-time global sea surface temperature (SST) analysis has been developed by Richard Reynolds from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC).Also, a monthly one-degree global SST climatology was constructed using these analyses by the Climate Prediction Center (CPC/NOAA).This climatology derived from monthly Optimum Interpolation (OIv2) SST analyses with.

The simulation data uses spatially complete coverage of surface air temperature whereas the observations use a spatially incomplete mix of air temperatures over land and sea surface temperatures over the ocean.

It is expected that this factor alone would cause the observations to show smaller trends than the simulations. Sea Surface Temperature Mapping salty waters 14 May The length and precision with which climate scientists can track the salinity, or saltiness, of the oceans is set to improve dramatically according to researchers working as part of ESA's Climate Change Initiative.

Bernardo Court, Suite SAN DIEGO, CA Sea surface temperature is the temperature of the top millimeter of the ocean's surface.

Sea surface temperatures influence weather, including hurricanes, as well as plant and animal life in the ocean. Like Earth's land surface, sea surface temperatures are warmer near the equator and colder near the poles.Sea Surface Temperature - WHOI This dataset provides a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of Sea Surface Temperature.
