SST After Hurricane Harvey

This image shows Gulf of Mexico Sea Surface Temperature (SST) following Hurricane Harvey. Blue/purple colors indicate areas of cooler water temperatures associated with the passage of the hurricane. The image was produced from the Multi-Scale Ultra-High Resolution (MUR) SST dataset.


Sea Surface Temperature (SST) has been observed by satellite instruments since 1981 and is one of the longest satellite-based records of any Earth climate variable. The MUR SST dataset combines satellite and in situ data. It is among the highest resolution SST analysis datasets currently available.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.


The Earth Observing System Data and Information System is a key core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program. It provides end-to-end capabilities for managing NASA’s Earth science data from various sources—satellites, aircraft, field measurements, and various other programs.
