Sea Surface Temperature Distribution on May 31, 2010 in the Gulf of MexicoBoulder CO, USA — CCAR Global Near Real-Time Sea Surface Temperature Viewer web page allows one to view maps of the sea surface temperature distribution anywhere on the globe. in near real-time. The image above, for example, is of the Gulf of Mexico (where the huge BP Oil Spill is threatening to move around the Florida peninsula and visit further environmental damage to the Southeastern Coastline of the USA).

There are two SST data sets available, AMSR-E and GHRSST.

More information on these data sets can be found at GHRSST-PP (www.ghrsst-pp.org) and AMSR-E (www.remss.com/amsr/amsr_browse.html).

This CCAR Global Near Real-Time Sea Surface Temperature Viewer page is hosted by the Colorado Center for Astrodynamics Research (CCAR at the University of Colorado, Boulder

The web page was created and is maintained by the CCAR Real-Time Altimeter Data Group.

The Group for High-Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (SST) (GHRSST) provides a new generation of global high-resolution (<10km) SST products to the operational oceanographic, meteorological, climate and general scientific community.

Every day, GHRSST global processing systems combine several complementary satellite and in situ SST data streams together and deliver integrated SST products with supporting data in a common netCDF format.

GHRSST data products are freely available in real time every day through various delivery services
