Satellite data show the 2012 hurricane season in North and Central America arrives with a muddled outlook, with sea surface temperatures that are neither particularly warm or cool.

The map, which shows sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and tropical eastern Pacific onMay 30, 2012, was built with data from the Microwave Optimally Interpolated SST product. It is a NASA-supported effort at Remote Sensing Systems, a research-oriented business in Santa Rosa, Calif.

Researchers combine observations and analyses from NASA’s Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission and Aqua and Terra satellites, as well as the U.S. Navy’s WindSAT instrument on the Coriolis satellite (operated jointly with the Air Force).
