Validation of satellite-derived ocean skin temperatures using the M-AERI

Abstract

As with any geophysical measurement, a careful assessment of the accuracy of the ATSR sea-surface temperature retrievals is a pre-requisite of the application of ATSR data. Using the Marine-Atmosphere Emitted Radiance Interferometer (M-AERI), ocean skin temperature measurements can now be made in a routine fashion from ships with an absolute uncertainty of less than 0.1K. This level of accuracy permits the validation for the atmospheric correction algorithms applied to AVHRR and ATSR data to retrieve sea surface temperature.
