AVHRR Bandwidth Tutorial
The previous page dealt with the wavelength range of AVHRR satellites, but how
are these bandwidths manipulated into quantifiable data? The following pictures
are the products band ratios yield:
Channel 1: AVHRR MCSST, or Multi-Channel Sea Surface Temperature.
SST is derived using two algorithms, IMGMAP and
OCNMAP, which use the difference of Infrared
channels 4 and 5 as a parameter.
