Abstract:

After a brief description of Barnes PRT-5 radiometer and of its possible use for sea-surface temperature measurements, the results obtained during an oceanographic survey in April 1969 in the Tyrrhenian Sea are presented. The data of the radiometer are compared with those obtained from bucket measurements, applying a statistical method. Satisfactory agreement between the two series of values is found. The influence of the inclination angle of a radiometer on the sea surface temperature measurements is also examined. The results agree with the data previously obtained by other authors. Author
