AVHRR Sea Surface Temperature Images
Satellite images were acquired at the MBARI ground station during a
mostly-clear period from April 20 through April 23. Upwelling occurred with
variable intensity during this period.
Images put other platforms/measurements into regional context:
temperature measurements by MBARI and NOAA surface platforms provide
"ground truth", permitting highly reliable calibration of AVHRR data.
Winds, which are
closely related to upwelling, were also acquired from these platforms
on the AVHRR images.
