V.K. Garde, M.S. Narayanan, B.M. Rao


Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) over the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal as derived from the NOAA-5 Very High Resolution Radiometer (VHRR) data recorded at the Space Applications Centre, Ahmedabad during November 1978 are reported. The SST retrieval method and the atmospheric attenuation corrections are described. The results corresponding to four days around a cyclone are compared with available ship observations. Spatial variations of SST for two days around the cyclone are also presented
