attribute NC_GLOBAL comments String The extended reconstructed sea surface temperature (ERSST)
was constructed using the most recently available
Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (COADS) SST data
and improved statistical methods that allow stable
reconstruction using sparse data.
Currently, ERSST version 2 (ERSST.v2) and version 3 (ERSST.v3) and ERSST.v3b) are available from NCDC.
ERSST.v3b is an improved extended reconstruction over version 2.
