The various Climatologies used by the
TAO Project to compute anomalies
are shown below. For variables such as Sea Surface Temperature which
are functions of Lon, Lat, and Time only, you will find three
representations of the data: Lat-Lon Maps, Lat-Time sections, and
Time-Lon sections. For the 4-D Kessler Objective Analysis of XBT
and CTD Temperatures (1994), there are also Lon-Depth and Lat-Depth sections.
For detailed information about the Climatologies and their sources,
see the Climatology Background
For example plots of Anomalies from these climatologies, and plots
of gridded TAO data which utilize these climatologies in the gridding
process, see the
Realtime TAO Buoy Data Display Page.
