Sea surface Temperature / SST for WRF

Post by katherine.Munoz » Thu Apr 16, 2020 3:07 am

Dear community,

I am writing here, because I was going to modelling WRF with NOAA SST, but I read on NOAA website that data is discontinued since February 2020.

ftp://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/history/sst/rtg_high_res

I will appreciate if you can indicate me any other SST that you have used to modelling with WRF.

Thanks,
Katherine

Hi Katherine,

The RTG_SST files you're looking for can be found here: ftp://ftpprd.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/gfs/prod/ .

The discontinued SST files from the ftp site you mentioned were in grib1 format, hence the reason for their discontinuation.

Cheers!

Brian
