A new multichannel infrared sea truth radiometer has been designed and built to improve validation of satellite-determined sea surface temperature. Horizontal grid polarized filters installed on the shortwave channels are very effective in reducing reflected solar radiation and in improving the noise characteristics. The system uses a continuous (every other cycle) seawater calibration technique. An analysis of the data from its first deployment is presented and recommendations are made for further improving the experimental method.
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices
to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this
process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated
with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots.
