Temperature of the Ocean
Bermuda Biological Station for Research BBSR conducts world-class science and education from its unique mid-Atlantic location. We seek to improve society's understanding of marine ecosystems, ocean/atmospheric interactions and ocean health, and their influence on man's habitat and health. BBSR, an independent U.S. non-profit research organization and Bermuda Registered Charity, provides well-equipped facilities for scientists and students from Bermuda and around the world.
Lamont-Doherty Geophysical Observatory International Research Institute IRI was established as a cooperative agreement between U.S. NOAA Office of Global Programs andColumbia University. It is part of The Earth Institute at Columbia University. IRI is located at the Lamont Doherty campus in Palisades, NY.
Maproom The IRI Map Room offers many detailed analyses of current global and regional climate, as well as historical data. Many maps are linked directly to the IRI Data Library.

Johns Hopkins University Remote Sensing laboratory: Sea-Surface Temperature The primary focus of this site is the near real-time presentation of sea surface temperature imagery for research and educational purposes. The Satellite Communications facility at the John Hopkins University / Applied Physics Laboratory regularly receives and the Ocean Remote Sensing Group records and processes imagery from the Advanced High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) on the NOAA polar-orbiting satellites.
Surface Temperature Data (Mostly Land) The NASA GISS Surface Temperature (GISTEMP) analysis provides a measure of the changing global surface temperature with monthly resolution for the period since 1880, when a reasonably global distribution of meteorological stations was established. Input data for the analysis, collected by many national meteorological services around the world, is the unadjusted data of the Global Historical Climatology Network (Peterson and Vose, 1997) except that the USHCN station records included were replaced by a later corrected version.

Climate Modelling Branch Sea-Surface Temperature Forecasts This page presents seasonal climate anomalies from the NCEP coupled forecast system model (CFS03). One forecast run is produced each day for 9 target months. Initial conditions are from the NCEP/DOE Reanalysis-2 (R2) for the atmosphere and from NCEP global ocean data assimilation system (GODAS) for the ocean. The forecast displayed here is ensemble mean of 20 forecast members from the latest initial conditions.
Experimental Monthly Sea-Surface Temperature Anomaly Maps (Global) 1984-1998 A satellite-only climatology has been provided at 36 km resolution by Al Strong (ORA). We are providing the SST climatology monthly mean anomaly images for the full dataset as provided by Al Strong at the full 36 km resolution. Data for years 1981-1983 and 1991-1992 are eliminated due to volcanic aerosol contamination.
Optimally Interpolated Sea-Surface Temperature Maps (Global) The optimum interpolation (OI) sea surface temperature (SST) analysis is produced weekly on a one-degree grid. The analysis uses in situ and satellite SSTs plus SSTs simulated by sea ice cover. Before the analysis is computed, the satellite data is adjusted for biases using the method of Reynolds (1988) and Reynolds and Marsico (1993).
Real-Time Sea-Surface Temperature Analysis-Regional and Global Maps A daily, high-resolution, real-time, global, sea surface temperature (RTG_SST) analysis has been developed at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction / Marine Modeling and Analysis Branch (NCEP / MMAB). The analysis was implemented in the NCEP production suite 30 January 2001, and provides the daily ocean surface temperatures for the Meso-Eta model.
Temperature in Gulf Stream Now and Forecasts-Surface and 200 m The purpose of Regional Ocean Forecast System (ROFS) is to generate daily nowcasts (i.e. analysis) and short-term (of order of days) forecasts of ocean properties for the coastal ocean of the United States. The development of ROFS for the U.S. East coast began in 1991 and it was implemented as experimental real time forecasting system in August, 1993. ROFS is based on hydrodynamic, three-dimensional ocean circulation model driven at the ocean surface boundary by heat, moisture, and momentum fluxes provided by NCEP's Eta mesoscale atmospheric forecast model.
Rutgers University Institute of Marine and Coastal Science IMCS (Institute of Marine and Coastal Science) provides national and international leadership in marine science and is New Jersey's focal point for education, research, and service efforts in estuarine, coastal, and ocean environments.
Real Time Sea-surface Temperature Images Near US Coasts Welcome to the RUCOOL satellite data image archive! On this web site you will find all of the available satellite data products we offer to research, industry, education and the general public. Satellite data are collected with SeaSpace L-Band and X-Band satellite dishes, both of which are on the top of the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences building on Cook Campus within the New Brunswick Campus of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
University of California Santa Barbara Institute for Computational Earth Science The Institute for Computational Earth System Science(ICESS), located on the University of California, Santa Barbara campus, provides an environment in which Earth and computer science are strongly coupled. Our focus is on research and graduate education in Earth sciences, with emphasis on processes governing the environmental optics of the Earth.
Real-Time Sea-surface Temperature Images US West Coast ICESS operates a SeaSpace TeraScan ground station that automatically receives and processes HRPT telemetry from the AVHRR sensors on board the NOAA polar orbiting satellites. We've programmed the TeraScan system to acquire AVHRR imagery transmitted by the NOAA-12 and NOAA-16 satellites. The imagery is then processed into two standard products
University of Miami Rosensteil School of Marine and Atmospheric Science The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science , founded by F.G. Walton Smith, is the University of Miami's graduate school of marine and atmospheric science. Dr. Otis Brown is the Dean of the Rosenstiel School. Located on a 16-acre campus on Virginia Key in Miami, it is the only subtropical applied and basic marine and atmospheric research institute of its kind in the continental United States.
Real-Time Sea-Surface Temperature Images of Various Parts of the Ocean The Remote Sensing Group in the Division of Meteorology and Physical Oceanography of the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science is actively engaged in satellite remote sensing of the earth's oceans. Low resolution visible and infrared imagery is collected daily from the NOAA sun-synchronous polar orbiting satellites.
Global Map of Sea Surface Temperature OTIS is an optimum interpolation (OI) based objective analysis scheme designed to produce analyses or "nowcasts" of ocean temperatures. OTIS has been implemented at FNMOC on a variety of regional (eddy resolving) and global (non-eddy resolving) grids. OTIS makes full use of the global real-time observations received at FNMOC.
