Real Time Satellite Images of Ocean Temperature
Entry ID: SST_COOL_RUTGERS


Summary
Abstract: The images in our database are from the AVHRR (advanced
very high resolution radiometer). Record approximately 9
of these passes per day. These images are just a small
sample of the area that can be seen. The satellite dish
on our roof allows us to see as far south as Puerto Rico,
as far west as Nevada, and up to 65 degrees N latitude
and 40 degrees W longitude.The images on the pages have
been calibrated to show sea surface temperatures. Land
temperatures, though slightly inaccurate, show the heat
emitted from major cities (such as Philly and NYC).
