Abstract:
The general nature of the research flights was to map sea surface temperature and overwater wind velocity in the vicinity of Monterey Bay on several individual days in August 2000. These data support the Naval Postgraduate School's ongoing efforts to monitor and model the upwelling circulation and accompanying ecosystem response in and around Monterey Bay. Most important, these flights were designed to coincide with a major oceanographic field campaign taking place during August 2000 the central component of which is MBARI's MOOS Upper-Water-Column Science Experiment (MUSE).

Several instruments were used to acquire the data. A GPS was used to determine latitude, longitude, pitch, roll, altitude, and velocity over the ground. A downward looking radiometer, KT19, was used to measure sea surface temperature. An air speed sensor, air temperature sensor, and dew point temperature were mounted on the wing of the aircraft.

Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
GPS data was used to determine aircraft speed and direction and were needed to remove aircraft motion in oder to obtain wind velocity. Roll data was used to exclude data during aircraft turns when the roll is greater than 5 degrees. As the plane flew along the flight path, the KT19 radiometer imaged a small patch on the sea surface (a few meters square) just below the airplane. The radiometer uses infrared measurements to determine sea surface temperature.
