Sea surface temperature seasonal averages from 2002 to 2013 for the southern South Atlantic

This dataseries is composed of rasters of seasonal averages of sea surface water temperature (in celsius degree) for approx. 4km pixel for the South Atlantic area (including Falkland Islands, Tristan Da Chuna and South Georgia). This data series was produced as part of the Darwin Plus- funded project 'Marine Spatial Planning for the Falkland Islands' (July 2014-July 2016). The dataseries is the result of a futher processing of the dataseries FK-SAERI-230.

Lineage The raw monthly composites were downloaded freely from OceanColour at http://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/cms/ as Level 3 mapped data. Monthly maps were classified as winter (Jun-Jul-Aug), spring (Sep-Oct-Nov), summer (Dec-Jan-Feb) and autumn (Mar-Apr-Jun). Average values for each pixel were calculated for season across the 11 years of data. Interpolation using Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW) filled in the no data pixel (where there was no data avaialble across all years).
