The Gulf of Mexico Regional Climatology version 2 consist of 1.0°, 0.25°, and 0.10° mean fields for temperature and salinity, and 1° mean fields for oxygen and other essential oceanographic parameters generated from the World Ocean Database released in 2018.

Temperature and salinity high-resolution decadal climatologies were prepared for six decades of 1955–64, 1965–74, 1975–84, 1985–94, 1995–2004, and 2005–2017 as well as a single climatology for 1955–2017. Oxygen and other oceanographic parameters were assembled as one climatology for 1955–2017.

The Gulf of Mexico Regional Climatology objective analyses and statistics data are presented in ASCII, comma separated value (CSV), ArcGIS compatible and netCDF formats.
