The Role of AMSR2 Channels within an Optimal Estimation Scheme for SST

Project Scientist Kevin Pearson has recently published a paper on the role of the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) channels within an optimal estimation scheme for sea surface temperature. The article is published in volume 10, issue 1 of the journal for remote sensing, and a full version of the paper can be downloaded from www.mdpi.com/2072-4292/10/1/90.

Optimal Estimation of SST from AMSR-E

Project Scientist Pia Nielsen-Englyst et al. have recently published a paper on the Optimal Estimation of Sea Surface Temperature from AQUA's Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E). The article is in volume 10, Issue 2 of the journal for remote sensing and a full version can be downloaded from www.mdpi.com/2072-4292/10/2/229.

 

Bayesian Cloud Detection for 37 Years of AVHRR GAC Data

Project Scientist Claire Bulgin has recently published a paper on Bayesian cloud detection for 37 years of Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) Global Area Coverage (GAC) data. The article is published in volume 10, issue 1 of the remote sensing journal, and a pdf can be downloaded from www.mdpi.com/2072-4292/10/1/97.

Paper Assessing the Stability of the (A)ATSR SST CCI Climate Dataset

Project Scientist Dave Berry has written a paper assessing the stability of the (A)ATSR sea surface temperature climate dataset from ESA's climate change initiative. The article is in volume 10, issue 1 of the journal for remote sensing, and a pdf copy can be downloaded from www.mdpi.com/2072-4292/10/1/126.

 

Sea Surface Temperature CCI Project

The Sea Surface Temperature Climate Change Initiative (SST CCI) project will accurately map the surface temperature of the global oceans over the period 1991 to 2010, using observations from many satellites. The aim is to independently quantify SST to a quality suitable for climate research.

The project started in August 2010. It is part of a wider initiative by the European Space Agency (ESA) addressing several essential climate variables in addition to SST.

As well as new data, we will specify a system for SST for climate for the future. Read more »

The datasets generated to date by SST CCI are available from the Centre for Environmental Data Archival via the page www.neodc.rl.ac.uk. Possibly it is most useful to go to the dataset pages using the DOIs of the datasets:
