Global analyses of monthly sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies from 1856 to 1991 are produced using three statistically based methods: optimal smoothing (OS), the Kalman lter (KF) and optimal interpolation (OI). Each of these is accompanied by estimates of the error covariance of the analyzed elds. The spatial covariance function these methods require is estimated from the available data; the time-marching model is a rst-order autoregressive model again estimated from data. The data input… CONTINUE READING
