NOAA CDR WHOI: Sea Surface Temperature, Version 2 (NOAA/CDR/SST_WHOI/V2)

Version V2

The Sea Surface Temperature - WHOI dataset is part of the NOAA Ocean Surface
Bundle (OSB) and provides a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of sea
surface temperature over ice-free oceans.

The SST values are found through modeling the diurnal variability in
combination with AVHRR observations of sea surface temperature.
