climatology
Climatology is based on 1971-2000 SST, Xue, Y., T. M. Smith, and R. W. Reynolds, 2003: Interdecadal changes of 30-yr SST normals during 1871.2000. Journal of Climate, 16, 1601-1612.
comment
SSTs were observed by conventional thermometers in Buckets (in sulated or un-insulated canvas and wooded buckets), Engine Room Intakers, or floats and drifters
