If you want some of our data in the simplest possible form, head to our new 'easy download' page. You can get the monthly SST time series for a particular latitude and longitude in a format readable into a spreadsheet.
For some applications, that is all someone needs, and deriving such data from the full archive could be too much work to be justified for a modest application. For this reason, Guy Griffiths has created this simplest-possible interface.
More difficult is to make sure the right people find this page when they hunt for simple SST data. You could help by linking there from any SST-relevant web pages you control: promote the page up the search-engine rankings!
