Abstract

We have examined accuracies of nine nighttime National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NOAA/NESDIS) equations for SST estimation using the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR)/NOAA-11 dataset produced by Sakaida and Kawamura (1992). Among the nine equations, the revised triple-window CPSST algorithm gives the smallest rms error, which is 0.38°C. The dual-window MCSST algorithm gives the largest rms error 0.56°C. Rms errors of the other algorithms are smaller than 0.5°C.
