ISRO Satelite Imagery profile picture

3DIMG_L2B_SST Sea surface temperature is derived from split thermal window channels (TIR1, TIR2) during daytime and using additional mid IR window channel (MIR) during night time over cloud free oceanic regions. The most important part of the SST retrieval from IR observations is the atmospheric correction, especially over tropics. This correction is determined through a suitable characterization of tropical atmospheres in radiative transfer model to simulate the brightness temperatures of INSAT-3D channels a
