HadISST1 Data: download

Users can now download subsets of the HadISST dataset!. The files below contain the full SST and sea ice fields and are rather large. For those who would prefer to work with smaller selections of the data, HadISST can also be obtained from the BADC data explorer, which allows you to download selected subsets of the data. You will have to register with BADC to use this facility, but it is a quick and simple process.

The SST data are available as a set of compressed plain text files in this data format.

The ICE data are available as a set of compressed plain text files in this data format.

The SST and ICE data are also available in decadal files.

The HadISST data are also available in pp format.

The HadISST data are also available in NetCDF format. NetCDF files are CF compliant (external link).

A preliminary version of the SST analysis is also available, typically around the 10th of the month.
