Image displaying sea surface temperature of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans for 31 January 2016. The Multiscale Ultrahigh Resolution (MUR) layer was created by the Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST). The analysis is based upon nighttime GHRSST L2P skin and subskin SST observations from several instruments including the NASA Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS (AMSR-E), the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the NASA Aqua and Terra platforms, the US Navy microwave WindSat radiometer and in situ SST observations from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in situ SST Quality Monitor (iQuam) project.
