Abstract

The measurement of global sea-surface temperature (s.s.t.) from space, with high absolute accuracy, is one of the important requirements of the World Climate Research Programme. This paper considers the definition of measurement aims and gives as examples the possible influence of Pacific s.s.t. on the lower stratosphere, and the role of s.s.t. in the cloud-climate feed-back process. A brief review is presented on current status in satellite measurements of s.s.t. with both infrared and microwave techniques, there is a description of a future s.s.t.-measuring instrument, the Along-Track Scanning Radiometer. -Authors
