Mercator Ocean maps: Global Ocean Surface Temperature

This section shows the global variation of sea temperature over a 4-month time period. The maps are created on a weekly basis and are made from altimetry data which are then converted to show increase in temperature, salinity and speed. For a more detailed explanation on the technique used, please go to PSY2G: moving towards global operational oceanography (.pdf file).
