The KNMI Climate Explorer has added a number of datasets to their Monthly observations webpage, where users select desired data based on global coordinates. (Many thanks to Dr. Geert Jan van Oldenborgh of KNMI.) The new datasets include, under the heading of Ocean mean temperature, the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) Vertically Averaged Temperature Anomaly data of the global oceans. The data are supported by the Levitus et al. (2009) paper World Ocean Heat Content and Thermosteric Sea Level change (0-2000 m),1955-2010. Basically, the NODC Vertically Averaged Temperature data are the temperature component of their Ocean Heat Content data. KNMI has added the vertically averaged temperature anomaly data for the depth ranges of 0-100 meters (1955 to present), 0-700 meters (1955 to present) and 0-2000 meters (2005 to present).
Note: KNMI has also added to their Climate Explorer the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) Ocean…
