Mid-June 2011 SST Anomaly Update


NINO3.4 SST anomalies did not make it 0.0 deg C anomaly over the past few weeks but they got close. For the week centered on June 15, 2011, the central equatorial Pacific (NINO3.4 region) SST anomalies are approximately -0.06 deg C.

NINO3.4 SST Anomalies – Short-Term


Weekly Global SST have made a good-sized increase in recent weeks, after a slow rebound from the La Niña minimum over the past few months. For the week centered on May 18, 2011, Global SST anomalies are +0.167 deg C.

Global SST Anomalies – Short-Term


This weekly Reynolds OI.v2 SST dataset begins in 1990. I’ve started the graphs in 2004 to make the variations visible.


OI.v2 SST anomaly data is available through the NOAA NOMADS system:

    Bob, thank you
    when you have a minute, email me at this email address
    I have something to show you and wordpress won’t let me post more than one
    link at a time.

  2. Bob Tisdale says:

    Latitude: Link as many as you like. I have 3 or more links in WordPress comments regularly. The comment may just get tossed into the spam filter. It takes nothing more on this end during moderation.

    thanks Bob,
    James was good enough to put it all on his site.
    It’s long and a lot of links. I had most of it saved in word and
    can’t figure out how to copy and paste it all at one time.
    I know you’re into sea level, a lot more than we are.
    When and if you have time, take a look and tell us what you think.
    Read the comments too, we’ve been adding to it.
    James is under the weather right now and can’t do but so much.

    Thanks again, here’s the link

    Bob, did you notice that GRACE is a better proxy for sea level trend than either Jason or Envisat?
    …and that GRACE is supposed to be gravity?

  5. Bob Tisdale says:

    Latitude: I assume you’re referring to the update in this post:

    I don’t know enough about that dataset to comment.

  6. Latitude says:

    Thanks Bob

    It’s no coincidence that GRACE is showing the exact same thing as Jason and Envisat.
    If this is what I think, We’ve all been had……..
