Sea surface temperature: An introduction to users on the set of GHRSST products

GHRSST Project Office; Beggs, Helen; Karagali, Ioanna

In this short document we have collected a list of valuable resources for you to use several GHRSST products
The Group for High Resolution SST (GHRSST) provides SST products in prescribed formats (GHRSST Science Team, 2012) – Level 2 pre-processed ("L2P") on the original swath projection, Level 3 composite (gridded) products formed using SST from a single swath/scene (“L3U”), single sensor and multiple swaths/scenes (“L3C”) or multiple sensors (“L3S”), and Level 4 gap-free SST from multiple sensors/platforms ("L4"). These global and regional spatially-mapped SST products are available for research and operational applications (Beggs, 2010; Donlon et al., 2009).

We refer in this document to GHRSST products because there is no ONE GHRSST product, but a wide range of products that suit different applications, and there are several web-tools available to assist a user to select an SST product, including validation sites.
