The Congo River in Africa has the world's second highest annual mean daily freshwater discharge and is the second largest exporter of terrestrial organic carbon into the oceans. It annually discharges an average of 1, × m3 of freshwater into the southeast Atlantic producing a vast fresh water plume, whose signature can be traced hundreds of kilometres from the river mouth. sea surface temperature, soil moisture AVHRR data can be acquired and formatted in four operational modes, differing in resolution and method of transmission. Data can be transmitted directly to the ground and viewed as data are collected, or recorded on board the satellite .

gain experience reading satellite sea surface temperature data. Tropical ocean temperatures have increased 1°C over the past years and are currently increasing at a rate of °C per century. It is likely that this global temperature increase is due, in part, to the burning of coal, oil, and gas. The processing of sea surface temperature by NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) from these radiance measurements uses the non-linear sea surface temperature (NLSST) algorithm detailed in Walton et al., SST measurements are generally accurate to within degrees Celsius.

The Office of Satellite and Product Operations (OSPO) is part of the National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service (NESDIS).

NESDIS is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Department of Commerce. A new miniature sensor, in conjunction with robust data processing techniques, is enabling a satellite the size of a backpack is to reveal Earth’s temperature from space.

The Compact Infrared Radiometer in Space instrument on a CubeSat, also known as CIRiS, began its orbit around Earth on Jan. 31,following its launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida to the International Space Station.

The Operational Sea Surface Temperature and Sea Ice Analysis (OSTIA) system generates global, daily, gap-filled foundation sea surface temperature (SST) fields from satellite data and in situ observations.

The SSTs have uncertainty information provided with them and. Abstract Measurements of sea surface temperature (SST) can be made by satellite microwave radiometry in all weather conditions except rain. Microwaves penetrate clouds with little attenuation Cited by: Satellite instruments measure sea surface temperature by checking how much energy is emitted by the ocean at different wavelengths.

Scientists also gather sea surface temperatures from ships and buoys, and check maps of sea ice. To produce the final map, data from all three sources are merged and smoothed with a mathematical filter.

Color enhanced versions of Sea Surface Temperatures from GOES Imager. The GOES and 12 imagers observe both northern and southern hemisphere every half an hour. These 5-band (,12 or micron) and 4-band (, or micron) images are processed to retrieve SST retrievals at 4-km resolution.

As a relative measure of the magnitude of SST difference, we computed the root-mean-square difference (rmsd) of two independent SST analyses, one from the U.K. Met Office, Hadley Centre Ice and Sea Surface Temperature (HadISST), V (Rayner et al.

) and the other from NCEP, Extended Reconstructed Sea Surface Temperature (ERSST) V2 (Smith. Sea surface temperature (SST) data sets are an essential resource for monitoring and understanding climate variability and climate change.

By surface area, SSTs are the dominant (~71%) input into merged global land-ocean surface temperature data products. Historically, SST measurments have been made from ships.

The NOAA geo-polar blended SST is a daily ° (~5km) global high resolution satellite-based sea surface temperature (SST) Level-4 analyses generated on an operational basis. This analysis combines SST data from US, Japanese and European geostationary infrared imagers, and low-earth orbiting infrared (U.S.

and European) SST data, into a. A climate data record of global sea surface temperature (SST) spanning – has been developed from 4 × 10 12 satellite measurements of thermal infra-red.

Satellite retrieval of sea-surface temperature The spectral distribution of radiation emitted by the sea surface at absolute temperature, T, is given by Planck's Function: (1) B λ T = 2 hc 2 λ − 5 e hc / λkT − 1 − 1 where h is Planck's constant, c is the speed of light in a vacuum, k is Boltzmann's constant, and λ is the wavelength.

A plot of daily sea surface temperatures from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) satellite for August 1st, This image was produced with NASA’s Panoply visualization tool. Ships and buoys have been recording sea surface temperatures, among many other parameters, for well over a hundred years.

Satellite-derived sea surface temperature fronts on the contaminated pixels, an edge-detection algorithm identifies surface temperature fronts in each image.

Maps of the seasonal probability of detecting a front indicate to small scales is most intense. Internal wave genera- tion and breaking, water mass interleaving, and wind. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Satellite Data Processing and Distribution has generated operational sea surface temperature (SST) retrievals from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) since December There are two platforms: GOES-E, situated at longitude 75°W; and GOES-W at °W.

be quite small if they cover all latitudes. We conclude that buoy SSTs can have residual bias errors of øC with RMS errors closer to øC. Introduction The regression procedure used widely to compute algorithm coefficients for the computation of sea surface temperature (SST) from infrared (IR) satellite radiances inherently.

These sea surface temperature maps are based on observations by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on NASA’s Aqua satellite.

The satellite measures the temperature of the top millimeter of the ocean surface. In this map, the coolest waters appear in blue (approximately -2 degrees Celsius), and the warmest temperatures appear in.

Expert Developer Guidance. The following was contributed by Viva F. Banzon and Richard W. Reynolds (both at NOAA/NCDC), September, GENERAL DESCRIPTION: NOAA’s Optimum Interpolation Sea Surface temperature (OISST, also known as Reynolds’ SST) is a series of global analysis products, including the weekly OISST on a 1° grid to the more recent daily on a ¼° grid.

Sea surface temperature increased during the 20 th century and continues to rise. From throughtemperature rose at an average rate of °F per decade (see Figure 1). Sea surface temperature has been consistently higher during the past three decades than at any other time since reliable observations began in (see Figure 1).

A sequence of four AWIPS images of the Suomi NPP VIIRS Sea Surface Temperature (SST) product (above) showed very detailed information about the SST patterns in the Gulf of Mexico on 21 January Two features in particular are worth noting: (1) what appears to be a train of Kelvin-Helmholtz instability waves along one of the northern boundaries of the Loop Current (best seen on the.

Historically, sea surface temperature (SST) has been measured by mercury-in-glass thermometers in buckets containing seawater collected by lowering them from ships and, in recent decades, thermistors on buoys or in the engine cooling water intakes of ships.

These thermometers measure a temperature at depths of tens of centimeters to a few meters, a temperature often referred to as the “bulk.Satellite-derived sea surface temperature (SST) fronts provide a valuable resource for the study of oceanic fronts.

Two edge detection algorithms designed specifically to detect fronts in satellite-derived SST fields are compared: the histogram-based algorithm of Cayula and Cornillon,Cayula and Cornillon, and the entropy-based algorithm of Shimada et al.

().Satellites have the capabilities to monitor the temperature of the ocean surface, which is also known as "Sea Surface Temperature" [SST].

The measurements are used by meteorologists for weather prediction, fishermen to identify fishing grounds and navigators to visualize currents.
