This dataset with monthly mean sea levels complements the Global Tide and Surge Reanalysis (GTSR) dataset. The GTSR time-series do not includes variations in mean sea level driven by changes in water mass and water density. We estimated the density effect by computing the monthly mean steric sea levels based on temperature and salinity data profiles. The algorithm is developed by Amiruddin et al., (2015; new windowhttps:/doi.org/10.1002/2015JC010923). We use monthly means of global gridded temperature and salinity data from Ishii and Kimoto (2009). This data set ends in 2012, so we use the EN4.1.1 dataset from the UK MET Office for the period 2012-2014 (Good et al., 2013; Gouretski & Reseghetti, 2010).
