Updated Datasets of ocean warming reconstruction

Ocean Heat Content and Thermosteric Sea Level

The original data from our PNAS paper can be dowloaded here

We are continuously working on updating the datasets fairly regularly (thanks to many comments and sugg estions over the recent weeks). For the most recent update (March 15th, v0) which include:

extending back to 1870 (rather than 1871),

adding year 2018

using Sea Surface Temperatures from NOAA Extended Reconstruction SSTsV4, COBE (in addition to HadISSTv1 and realisations from HadISST v2)

thermal expansion coefficients calculated using annual-mean climatology for 2005-2012 of WOA2013.

The datasets for the upper 300 m, upper 700 m, upper 2000 m, below 2000 m, and full depth (with errors defined as one-SD and derived from perturbing the Green’s Functions and from the use of different SSTs) are here:

Ocean Heat Content (v0) 1870-2018

Thermosteric Sea Level (v0) 1870-2018

For further details regarding the method, please consult our manuscript and supplementary material.
