Tropical Storms and Sea Surface Temperature

Trails of cool water, or cold wakes, often form along hurricane tracks due to wind-induced mixing and turbulence that brings deep cold water to the surface. This image shows water approximately 2°C cooler from normal (blue/blue green areas) that persisted several days along three 2018 storm tracks.

The MUR SST Analysis

This image uses data from the Multi-scale Ultra-high Resolution (MUR) Sea Surface Temperature (SST) analysis. The MUR SST is a consistent time series of global SST gridded at 1 km resolution, and is available through NASA’s Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC).


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