Data distribution figures for temperature and salinity observations, temperature and salinity anomaly fields for depths 0-2000m, heat content and steric sea level
(thermosteric, halosteric, total). Temperature anomalies and heat content fields are detailed in World Ocean Heat Content and Thermosteric Sea Level change (0-2000 m),
1955-2010
, pdf (8.1 MB). The same calculations have been extended to keep the fields current and include fields of salinity anomalies, and steric sea level components.
Explanation of differences in heat content between published work and online values is outlined in the notes (pdf, 4.2 MB).
