This page shows a list of links at the Met Office to monitor the
performance of the SST retrievals from the AATSR instrument onboard
the ENVISAT satellite. The Met Office recieves ESA's AATSR Meteo
product daily which contains a skin SST plus brightness temperatures
at 10 x 10 arcminute spatial resolution. The product is used to
estimate a skin SST from the brightness temperatures at the Met
Office, and to derive a bulk SST by applying a skin effect correction.
Global maps of various SSTs (skin and bulk) are updated daily.
Comparisons of the estimated bulk and skin SSTs against buoy SSTs
are updated weekly, whilst further validation plots against the
HadISST1 analyses are updated once a month.
