The HadSST2 Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly data archived by the UK Met Office Hadley
Center (http://hadobs.metoffice.com/hadsst2/index.html) and is presented here in what is hoped
to be a more interactive and user-friendly format. Data from 1850-1997 is from the ICOADS
(International Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set) and from 1998 to present is
NCEP-GTS dataset.

The data generated is the SST anomaly for each of the nearly 2600 5-degree squares of latitude
and longitude around the globe; minus those over land areas. The squares are numbered
beginning at the International Dateline and the North Pole and going east. The gridpoint
associated with each square is the center point of the square.
For example, gridpoint #732, 37.5, -122.5, is the SST average for the 5-degree square bordered by
Latitude 35N and 40N and Longitude 120W and 125W.

In addition to the default calendar format, the “Long List” hyperlink present the data in a single
long column for importing into time-series. Enjoy.
