Experimental Tropical SST Forecast Products
These experimental sea surface temperature (SST) forecasts are made using the Linear Inverse Modeling (LIM) technique and are a useful indicator of the status of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO). Updates are usually available by the 10th of each month.
