DYCOMS-II Surface: NOAA/NESDIS California Coast SST Imagery


The NOAA/NESDIS California Coast SST Imagery (GIF) is one of several surface products collected as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus PhaseII: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project field catalogoperated by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL: The images are produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) every few days and include sea surface temperatures.
