An equirectangular view of sea surface temperature (SST) data for the past two and half years, updated daily to include the latest available data.

This visualization shows Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Multi-scale Ultra-high Resolution (MUR) Sea Surface Temperature Analysis. The analysis data is near-real-time (one day latency) and the visualization is updated daily to include the latest available data.

A view of sea surface temperature (SST) data for the past two and a half years, updated daily with the latest available data. This version uses a Robinson projection and includes a diagonal line pattern marking regions where the temperature is above 82°F. Meteorologists generally agree that SSTs above 82°F (27.8°C) intensify and sustain hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons.
