The Sea Surface Temperature Climate Change Initiative (SST CCI) project will accurately map the surface temperature of the global oceans over the period 1991 to 2010, using observations from many satellites. The aim is to independently quantify SST to a quality suitable for climate research.
The project started in August 2010. It is part of a wider initiative by the European Space Agency (ESA) addressing several essential climate variables in addition to SST.
As well as new data, we will specify a system for SST for climate for the future. Read more »
