1. Global Level 4 GHRSST Operational Sea Surface Temperature and Sea Ice Analysis (OSTIA) data produced by the UK Met Office.  These data are in the new GDS2 format using netCDF4. This particular Level 4 dataset is on a 0.05 deg grid and produced once a day. Data are available from April 2013 to present.

2. Global Level 4 GHRSST CMC 0.2deg sea surface temperature (SST) data produced by the Canadian Meteorological Centre (CMC).  These data are in the new GDS2 format using netCDF4. This particular Level 4 dataset is on a 0.2 deg grid and produced once a day. Data are available from September 1991 to present.

About Seelye Martin

Seelye Martin received his Ph.D. in engineering mechanics from Johns Hopkins University in 1967 then spent two years as a research associate in the Department of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1969 he took up a position in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington where he is now an Emeritus Professor. Beginning in 1987, he taught courses on remote sensing of the oceans. Professor Martin has been involved with passive microwave, visible/infrared and radar ice research since 1979, and has served on a number of NASA and NOAA committees and panels involving remote sensing and high latitude processes. He has made many trips to the Arctic for research on sea ice properties and oceanography. From 2006-2008, he worked at NASA Headquarters as Program Manager for the Cryosphere, where he also served as program scientist for the ICESat-1 and ICESat-2 missions. After leaving Headquarters, from 2009 -2012, he worked in a variety of roles for the NASA high-latitude IceBridge remote sensing aircraft program. For this work, in 2012 he was awarded the NASA Exceptional Public Service Medal.
