Geoscience Data Journal paper

An open-access journal article describing the SST CCI phase 1 datasets was published today.

It is published in Geoscience Data Journal. I think the advent of 'data journals' over the past few years is a good development. The traditional recourse of trying to shoe-horn a detailed data description into a paper with science results was not ideal, particularly for large complex datasets such as those created by reprocessing EO archives for climate.

The new paper is:

Merchant, C. J., Embury, O., Roberts-Jones, J., Fiedler, E., Bulgin, C. E., Corlett, G. K., Good, S., McLaren, A., Rayner, N., Morak-Bozzo, S. and Donlon, C. (2014), Sea surface temperature datasets for climate applications from Phase 1 of the European Space Agency Climate Change Initiative (SST CCI). Geoscience Data Journal. doi: 10.1002/gdj3.20
  1. European Space Agency, ESRIN/Contract No. 4000101570/10/I-AM ‘Phase 1 of the ESA Climate Change Initiative SST_cci’
