Global SSS maps are computed at BEC using a new methodological approach to cope with land and RFI contamination.

Products

Three different products are generated

Binned data

Daily map of 9 day binned data in a rectangular grid at 0.25º resolution, from 2011 to 2016.

Objective analised data

Daily map of 9 day objective analysed data in a rectangular grid at 0.25º resolution, from 2011 to 2016.

Fused data

Daily fused with OSTIA SST maps in a rectangular grid at 0.05o resolution, from 2011 to 2016


These maps have been validated with near-surface measurements provided by Argo profilers, which allow us to define several quality metrics.
