The Accuracy of SST Retrievals from NOAA-AVHRR in the Persian Gulf

A. Ahmadabadi, A. Fathnia, M. Karimi Ahmadabad and M. Farajzadeh

Abstract:
In the present study, sea surface temperature of the Persian Gulf was estimated using NOAA-14- AVHRR data during the period of 1996-2000. The Persian Gulf, despite being a major economic and political region has not systematic marine measurement in particular that of sea surface temperature. In order to estimate sea surface temperature in areas where no data was available, an attempt has been made to use AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) data from NOAA (National Ocean and Atmosphere Administration) satellite 14. After computing SST from AVHRR data with the use Murty, Gowda and national center of remote sensing Australia algorithms were assessed with in situ Boushehr buoy sea surface temperature and a linear correlation was formulated to estimate sea surface temperature with a residual mean error of ±0.43 and R2 = 0.994. Finally, this modified formula was tested in 2 months (September and December 1999) of NOAA-14 AVHRR images and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) was computed in the Persian Gulf. Considering this amount of error, time series temperature can be created with this method.
