Sep-Nov 2016 SS T Anomaly

Sept-Nov SST Anomaly shows seasonal deviation in sea surface temperature characteristics in 2016 during the onset of WIO summer season. The layer shows warmer than normal SST in the southern parts of the Mozambique channel.
This data was derived using raster calculator in ArcGIS 10.3 to derive the 2016 seasonal average, and subtracted from this the long-term seasonal average from the 2003-2016 data series.
