Remote Sensing Systems has updated its optimally interpolated (OI) SST products to version 5.0.
Significant changes from version 4.0 include:
GMI is added to both MW and MW_IR products
VIIRS-NPP is added to the MW_IR product
The diurnal warming model is updated
The sensor-specific error statistics (SSES) for each microwave sensor are updated
The quality control of sensor SST is adjusted so the rain (MW) or cloud (IR) erosion is consistent
The sensor correlation model is updated
Gzipped bytemap files in the same format as the version 4.0 product
L4 netCDF files following the GHRSST Data Specification 2.0
The v5.0 MW product is currently available from 1998-01-01 to present. The v5.0 MW_IR product is currently available from 2013-01-01 and will be back-processed to 2002-06-01 over the coming months as resources permit.
