NOAA CDR: Ocean Near-Surface Atmospheric Properties, Version 2 (NOAA/CDR/ATMOS_NEAR_SURFACE/V2)

Version V2

The Ocean Near-Surface Atmospheric Properties dataset is part of the NOAA
Ocean Surface Bundle (OSB) and provides a high quality Climate Data Record
(CDR) of air temperature, wind speed, and specific humidity over ice-free
ocean surfaces.

These atmospheric properties are calculated based on brightness temperature
data from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) and the Special Sensor
Microwave/Imager Sounder (SSMIS) on the Defense Meteorological Satellite
Program (DMSP) spacecraft, using a neural network.

air_temperatureAir temperature at 10m°C
specific_humiditySpecific humidity at 10mg/kg
wind_speedWind speed at 10mm/s
