Ganymed 4.1 currently has support for three data oceans for SSTs:
Reynolds is a 1-degree ocean SST boundary condition.
MERRA-2 is a 1/4-degree ocean SST boundary condition.
OSTIA is a 1/8-degree ocean SST boundary condition.
Chemical Boundary Conditions
Here is a description of the boundary conditions from the Nature Run.
