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 page.
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.
