New Wave Height and Sea Surface Temperature Map Layers

We’re always working on expanding and improving our AerisWeather Mapping Platform (AMP), including the new global radar (derived) we recently launched. Continuing that trend, we’ve released two new ocean layers:  an improved sea surface temperature map layer and an ocean wave heights layer.

Improved Sea Surface Temperature Layer

Our improved sea surface temperatures (SST) layer is now updated daily. Furthermore, the improved data is also less affected by cloud cover over an area to provide a more complete picture of surface conditions. Use the layer code   to access the sea surface temperatures layer:

Using our AMP wizard, you can test the layer as a stand-alone image or within an interactive map.

The sea surface temperatures layer is updated daily and is available to AMP Premium subscribers and replaces our previous  layer. We have mapped the old layer name to the new  layer name, so no changes are required to migrate to the new layer.

New Ocean Wave Heights Layer

Additionally, we have released a new global wave heights layer. Wave height data updates hourly and provides a global view of estimated oceanic wave heights. Use the layer code   to access this new layer:

Try out the wave heights layer using our AMP wizard as a stand-alone image or within an interactive map.

The new sea surface temperatures and wave heights layers can be used today and are available to AMP Premium subscribers and with our free developer trial!
