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 North Sea measured by the SISTeR on-board MS Prinsesse Ragnhild during her voyages in 2008 .
