Summary
Abstract: The Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) is one of the Announcement of Opportunity (AO) instruments on board ENVISAT. It is the most recent in a series of instruments designed to measure Sea Surface Temperature (SST) to the high levels of accuracy and precision required for the monitoring and detection of climate change.

By agreement with the European Space Agency (ESA) access to the AATSR data are restricted to those who have signed the ESA Catergory One Agreement.
