Figure 2. Map of monthly average SSTs in the Arctic Ocean ecoregions for September 2009. Figure 2A is raster format data, figure 2B is point shapefile format data. The absence of data at the pole approximately corresponds to the sea ice coverage for September 2009 (Fetterer and others, 2002, updated 2009).
