This is a review of “A New Global Gridded Sea Surface Temperature Data Product Based on Multisource Data” by Mengmeng Cao1, Kebiao Mao, Yibo Yan1, Jiancheng Shi, Han Wang, Tongren Xu, Shu Fang, and Zijin Yuan. The authors have merged the sea surface temperature (SST) data from multiple sources to create a new high-resolution global dataset of monthly SST. The new data product does not contain any missing values and has been shown to be more accurate than the unmerged datasets. However, I have some concerns about the usefullness of the new dataset and the assessment of accuracy (see general comments). Moreover, the authors may need to emphasize the novelty and the uniqueness of the methods used to create the new data set.
