Extended Data Table 1 Influence of monthly averaging on MHW metrics

From: Thermal displacement by marine heatwaves

  1. For each of the locations in Fig. 3, MHW metrics are shown on the basis of (i) daily SST anomalies used to define MHWs with a 90th-percentile threshold and a five-day minimum duration21, and (ii) monthly SST data used to define MHW with a 90th-percentile threshold and a one-month minimum duration. For the duration, intensity and thermal displacement, median values are shown, with the 25th–75th percentile range in parentheses.
