Abstract/Summary

There are many challenges in blending historical and modern observations of sea surface temperature (SST) into homogenous gridded data sets suitable for use in climate research. Many of these problems can be avoided if proper choices are made during design and deployment phases of new instrumentation and observing systems, as specified in the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) climate monitoring principles (http://www.wmo.int/pages/prog/gcos/documents/GCOS_Climate_Monitoring_Principles.pdf).
