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
The foundation SST estimates are available in two formats:

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.
