Global Ocean Heat and Salt Content

External Data Spec Published 10 Mar 2016
Data distribution figures for temperature and salinity observations, temperature and salinity anomaly fields for depths 0-2000m, heat content and steric sea level (thermosteric, halosteric, total). Temperature anomalies and heat content fields are detailed in  World Ocean Heat Content and Thermosteric Sea Level change (0-2000 m), since 1955.  The same calculations have been extended to keep the fields current and include fields of salinity anomalies, and steric sea level components. Explanation of differences in heat content between published work and online values is outlined in the  notes
