    • title: NOAA Extended Reconstructed SST V3
    • conventions: CF-1.0
    • history: created 09/2007 by CAS
    • comments: The extended reconstructed sea surface temperature (ERSST)\012was constructed using the most recently available \012Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (COADS) SST data \012and improved statistical methods that allow stable \012reconstruction using sparse data.\012Currently, ERSST version 2 (ERSST.v2) and version 3 (ERSST.v3) are available from NCDC.\012 ERSST.v3 is an improved extended reconstruction over version 2.\012 Most of the improvements are justified by testing with simulated data.\012 The major differences are caused by the improved low-frequency (LF) tuning of ERSST.v3 \012which reduces the SST anomaly damping before 1930 using the optimized parameters.\012 Beginning in 1985, ERSST.v3 is also improved by explicitly including\012 bias-adjusted satellite infrared data from AVHRR.
