Objectively Analyzed Air-Sea Fluxes (OAFlux) For Global Oceans, By Lisan Yu et al.

This dataset includes the 3rd release of the global ocean-surface heat flux products. The OAFlux products are constructed from multiple data sources, an optimal blending of satellite retrievals and three atmospheric analyses. Daily fluxes are computed from the optimally estimated variables using the COARE bulk flux algorithm 3.0.

Monthly products are made from entire 49-year period, and daily products are available from 1985 onward. For further information, please visit the OAFlux Project Home Page [http://oaflux.whoi.edu/].
