MODIS Sea Surface Temperature (SST) monthly anomaly

Monitoring of sea surface temperature (SST) provides fundamental information on the global climate system and for the study of marine ecosystems. This layer compares the SST value of the last full month with the long-term mean SST. A positive anomaly (warm colours) means the monthly SST is warmer than the long-term average for that month; a negative anomaly (cool colours) means it is cooler than the average.
