Unusual SST Anomaly 1 - South of the Cape of Good Hope

Off the South African Coast, south of the Cape of Good Hope, I encountered an area, Figure 1, with an unusual SST anomaly curve. Refer to Figure 2. Between 1955 and 1962, SSTs rapidly rose more than 1.3 deg C, then dropped 1.0 deg C over the next 10 years.

Sea Surface Temperature Data is Smith and Reynolds Extended Reconstructed SST (ERSST.v2) available through the NOAA National Operational Model Archive & Distribution System (NOMADS).

The Smith and Reynolds SST Posts DOES NOT LIST ALL SST POSTS. I stopped using ERSST.v2 data for SST when NOAA deleted it from NOMADS early in 2009.
