>Well, There Ya Have It (OI.v2 SST Data Update Schedule)

>

NOAA’s schedule for providing real-time OI.v2 SST data is described in their FAQ webpage:
http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/research/cmb/sst_analysis/FAQ.html

They write:

############
The real-time weekly fields run Sunday through Saturday and are generated early Monday morning. We have to wait until we can interpolate weekly fields to the last day of the month to generate a complete monthly field. Thus, the full monthly fields are updated according to the following schedule:

It is best to wait until late morning (US Eastern Time) to pick up new fields to give us time to ensure the analysis ran properly.
############

So it appears I downloaded preliminary data on the first of last month and what I called a correction was really the official data.

In light of this, I will post preliminary Global and NINO3.4 SST anomaly data on or around the first of each month, then wait until the NOAA analysis is complete before posting my monthly updates.

    >Bob,I appreciate your offer for your blog-space and time for debate, once again. Does not look like Dennis Hlinka has the where-with-all to debate. Typical.I more than likely will not have need to ask again as I set up my own blog at http://www.endisfar.com to meet my needs.Regards,Steve

    >Anonymous: Regarding the the KNMI address you listed, I just tried it and it worked for me. Maybe they were temporarily off-line when you tried it.Regards
