Tropical Pacific Sea Surface Temperature (SST) anomalies between 1970-1985

This data is hosted on the web page of Chris Wikle http://www.stat.missouri.edu/~wikle/datasets.html. The text below is copied from that website.

Description:

These data represent gridded monthly SST anomalies for 399 consecutive months from January 1970 through March 2003. The data were obtained from the IRI/LDEO Climate Data Library at Columbia University (http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/). The data are gridded at a 2 degree by 2 degree resolution and represent anomalies from a January 1970 - December 1985 monthly (average) climatology. A more complete description can be found at http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.CAC/
