Summary

The function getSST reads and store the sea surface temperature (SST) produced daily by the JPL OurOcean group [1]. The dataset is described in more details in Chao et al. [2]. The SST data are available on a grid of 0.009 degree, which represents a horizontal resolution of approximatively 1 km. In the documentation, the second example uses the function borders.m and/or bordersm.m [3,4]. This is the first version of the submission, some bugs may still be present. Credits should go to [1,2] for the dataset.

Content

The repository contains:

  • The function getSST, which read the netcdf files and extract the SST data, time and corresponding coordinates
  • An example within the Matlab livescript Documentation.mlx
