This report is a collection of 192 examples of thermal imagery recorded from aircraft over bodies of water. These infrared pictures show the surface expressions of eddies, convection cells, currents, and thermal fronts in addition to sea ice, wind streaks, whitecaps, and waves. Explanatory information, such as portions of National Ocean Survey charts corresponding to some of the imagery, is provided. The imagery presented was recorded during the period May 1959 to May 1972 by seven airborne passive infrared line scanners the Reconofax Camera ANAAD-2 Reconofax IV, Mark II ANAAR-30 ANAAR-32 ANAAR-35 and Reconofax XIIIA brief descriptions of the equipment and a table of design and performance parameters are supplied. The imagery was recorded in the 3- to 5.5-micrometer and 8-to 14-micrometer spectral bands. Sensitivities of sets with the various detector types employed GeAu, GeCu, GeHg, InSb, HgCdTe ranged from 0.001 to 0.3 K resolutions varied from 18.4 to 1.0 mrad.
