Matlab functions to import the high-resolution sea surface temperature data from the JPL OurOcean group

The function getSST reads and store the sea surface temperature (SST) produced daily by the JPL OurOcean group [1]. The dataset is described in more details in Chao et al. [2]. The SST data are available on a grid of 0.009 degree, which represents a horizontal resolution of approximatively 1 km. In the documentation, the second example uses with the function borders.m and/or bordersm.m [3,4]. This is the first version of the submission, some bugs may still be present. Credits should go to [1,2] for the dataset.


The repository contains:

	The function getFilesName, which extract the address of the netcdf files containing the SST data
	The function getSST, which read the netcdf files and extract the SST data, time and corresponding coordinates
	An example within the Matlab livescript Documentation.mlx
