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:

Sea surface 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 and overlaid on the AVHRR images.
