Abstract

Skin Sea Surface Temperature data from the (A)ATSR Validation Campaign by SISTeR (Scanning Infrared Sea surface Temperature Radiometer). To ensure the accuracy of the (A)ATSR, there have been joint efforts to validate the measurement data. One of these efforts is the (A)ATSR Validation Campaign which involves the deployment of the Scanning Infrared Sea surface Temperature Radiometer (SISTeR). This dataset contains the SST data of the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and the Western Pacific measured by the SISTeR on-board RMS Queen Mary 2 (QM2) during her voyages since 2010. The data collection continues despite the end of AATSR mission for continuation of SST measurement before the deployment of SLSTR on Sentinel-3.
