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