Abstract

The Global Ocean Surface Temperature Atlas Plus (GOSTAplus) contains maps of Sea Surface Temperature (SST) climatologies and anomalies, Night Marine Air temperature climatologies and anomalies and Sea Ice coverage spanning the period 1851-1995. Dataset includes gridded, global SSTs from 1951-1990 and Sea Ice coverage from 1903 to 1994. The data are provided by the Met Office. Updated version of some data also available on request.

Data lineage:

Data prepared by the Global Ocean Surface Temperature Atlas (GOSTA) project and then sent to BADC on CD-ROM for wider dissemination on request. The data are stored in Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) on the HDF format CD-ROM. A Unix BINARY (2 bytes) version of this CD-ROM is now separately available.

Data Quality:
Quality controlled by data suppliers
File Format:
Data availability and file format

The data are stored in Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) on the HDF format CD-ROM. Conversion software is available in the HDF Libraries to download and convert the HDF (.hdf) files into ascii (.txt) files.

A Unix BINARY (2 bytes) version of this CD-ROM is now separately available, including read software to convert the raw binary files (.raw) into ascii (.txt) files.
