GOES Imager (GOES-15 and earlier) Level 3

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Office of Satellite Data Processing and Distribution are generating operational sea surface temperature (SST) retrievals from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites GOES-East and West. The generation of SSTs began with GOES-8 in 2000 and has continued to be generated through GOES-15. The current operational satellites are GOES-13 and GOES-15.

Seviri (MSG) geostationary, Level 3

2018_286_32U_120.png SSTs from Meteosat-11 data (centered at 0¡ longitude), taking a sub-selection of channels from the SEVIRI instrument that corresponds with those of the GOES-Imager. The main differences for the end-user are that the Meteosat SST products are "full-disk", every 15 minutes, and have a resolution at the nadir point of ~3-km, at least for the GHRSST L2P data.
