We made minor version update for AMSR2 Sea Surface Temperature
(SST) products from Ver.4.0 to Ver.4.1 on July 27, 2022.
Details of algorithm updates and evaluation results are available from here.
Please note that 10GHz sea surface temperature below 9 degrees
Celsius tends to be worsen by applying SSES bias. This issue will
be investigated and solved in future release.

About GHRSST

JAXA provides near-real-time data Sea Surface Temperature (SST) retrievals from several passive microwave imagers as a contribution to the Group for High Resolution SST (GHRSST).
Those SST products are produced at Earth Observation Research Center (EORC) of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
All SST products are in GDS format defined by GHRSST, and available as L2P (swath grid) and L3C (daily grid) products.
