Moderate-Resolution Sea Surface Temperature Data for the Nearshore North Pacific


Access Databases

Skip past contents information

The nearshore North Pacific SST data are available for download as MS Access databases (in 2003 .mdb format). Unlike the GIS data, these data are not ordered by year. Rather, they are arranged by geographical province (fig. 3). Each province database includes all of the individual monthly tables over all available years (September 1981 — December 2009) for points located within the specified province. To download the databases, click on the appropriate province name in the table below.

Province Description File Type File Size Metadata

Cold Temperate Northwest Pacific Access 2003 database containing Nearshore SSTs of the Cold Temperate Northwest Pacific Ocean Province over the period 9/1981 - 12/2009. .mdb 1.8 GB
Warm Temperate Northeast Pacific Access 2003 database containing Nearshore SSTs of the Warm Temperate Northeast Pacific Ocean Province over the period 9/1981 - 12/2009. .mdb 1.1 GB

Figure 3. Map of the four Marine Ecosystem of the World (MEOW) Provinces that comprise the Temperate Northern Pacific and Arctic Realms (Spalding and others, 2007). The Cold Temperate Northeast Pacific includes the Aleutian Islands and the Pacific coast of North America, from Alaska to Southern California. The Warm Temperate Northeast Pacific contains the Baja Region. The Cold Temperate Northwest Pacific includes the Kamchatka coast of the Bering Sea and the Kuril Islands as well as the inland seas of Okhotsk, Japan, and the Yellow Sea, and much of the Japanese coast. Lastly, the Warm Temperate Northwest Pacific encompasses the East China Sea, the south coast of Korea and the Pacific coasts of Kyushu, Shikoku, and part of the Honshu Islands of Japan.
