SGLI SST L2P in 1km resolution is available at the server from Jan. 1, 2020 to present.

SGLI SST L2P in “250m resolution” will be available for 7 days (due to its BIG file size…).

SGLI SST is validated by using NOAA’s iQuam buoy data. RMSE and bias of “Good” quality data are 0.40 degC and -0.12 degC respectively over global ocean for daytime during 2019.

Please see the following PDF for detailed validation results.
