The PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the public release of the NOAA/STAR GHRSST Level 3S (super-collated) version 2.81 SST datasets, produced from the Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) JPSS (NPP, N20, N21), Metop-FG (Metop-A, B C) and NASA (Aqua, Terra) satellites.

The L3S-LEO is a family of global multi-sensor L3S gridded 0.02ยบ resolution SST products. The L3S-LEO-PM (afternoon orbit) SST is derived from VIIRSs flown onboard JPSS satellites (NPP, N20 and N21) and MODIS onboard Aqua, by collating individual satellite ACSPO L3U SST data. It comprises 2 daily files, day and night, corresponding to nominal local equator crossing times around 01:30/13:30, respectively. The L3S-LEO-DY (daily) further combines L3S-LEO-PM and AM SSTs, both day and night, from afternoon (PM; NPP, N20, N21, Aqua) and mid-morning orbit (AM; Metop-A, B , C) satellites, plus Terra MODIS between 2000-02-24 and 2021-12-31, into a single daily SST product.

The L3S-LEO-PM and DY datasets are produced with the NOAA enterprise Advanced Clear Sky Processor for Ocean (ACSPO) v2.81 SST system, by the NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR). The datasets are formatted as ....
