Unformatted text preview: NOAAs Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometers (AVHRR). AVHRR measures infrared radiation emitted from the Earths sea surface but the infrared band is affected by clouds and atmospheric conditions. That being said, infrared radiation measurements are very high resolution. Thus, the combination of microwave and infrared radiation measurements are used to construct a cloud-free, high resolution depiction of SST anomalies. The initial SST dataset is provided by the NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research. The dataset for the images are produced by the NOAA Environmental Visualization Lab and include the NOAA National Climatic Data Center Optimum Interpolation SST anomaly dataset....
