NCEI maintains GHRSST’s long-term archive, shares stewardship responsibilities with the NASA JPL/Caltech Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) and the Global Data Assembly Center (GDAC), and coordinates an international effort to produce more accurate and consistent climate data record analysis products. Each Regional Data Assembly Centre (RDAC) delivers data to the GDAC and the regional user community. Data are served from the GDAC to near-real-time users and applications for 30 days before the data are sent to the LTSRF for long-term archive, stewardship, provision to delayed mode users, and future ECV/CDR production.

Additional information is available from the Group for High Resolution SST (GHRSST).
