Monthly Climatological Sea Surface Temperature

This map shows an animation of monthly climatological sea surface temperature (in °C) through the course of the year based on Reynolds and Smith OISST Version 2 data using the 1971-2000 base period.

Shading indicates the monthly climatological sea surface temperature in units of °C. Contours are drawn at an interval of 2°C.
