GHRSST NOAA/STAR Himawari-08 AHI L3C Pacific Ocean Region SST v2.70 dataset (GDS version 2)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

The ACSPO H08/AHI L3C (Level 3 Collated) product is a gridded version of the ACSPO H08/AHI L2P product. The L3C output files are 1hr granules in NetCDF4 format, compliant with the GHRSST Data Specification version 2 (GDS2). There are 24 granules). All valid SSTs in L3C are recommended for users, although data over internal waters may not have enough in situ data to be adequately validated. Per GDS2 specifications, two additional Sensor-Specific Error Statistics layers (bias and standard deviation) are reported in each pixel with valid SST (Petrenko et al., 2016). The ACSPO VIIRS L3U product is monitored and validated against iQuam in situ data (Xu and Ignatov, 2014) in SQUAM (Dash et al, 2010).
