summary: AVHRR Pathfinder Oceans Project seeks to create a long-term, continuous sea surface temperature data series for use in climate research. The Pathfinder SST data begins with historic AVHRR Global Area Coverage SST. This data is re-evaluated and re-calibrated, improving both the accuracy and number of valid SST values (due to improved cloud-masking).
