Temperature 3-month period, pentadal, and yearly anomaly fields (ASCII and netCDF files)

Yearly, pentadal, and 3-month anomalies are mean differences for the given time period from monthly mean climatologies. To download the temperature anomaly files, you may download an individual file or a tar file of all years for a particular type of a parameter (i.e., all years of the temperature analyzed anomalies in one tar file).
The WOA documentation includes information on downloading and reading the data.
