El Nino Observations by Remote Sensing,
NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL SATELLITE DATA AND INFORMATION SERVICE SUITLAND MD
Several excellent NOAA-7 images have enabled delineation of surface thermal patterns off the South American coast. Comparison with drifting buoys on an interactive processing system show excellent agreement with the new multichannel sea surface temperature MCSST algorithms now being used operationally by NOAA. Compositing data over several days allows one to further remove clouds bringing out SST structure over large areas revealing major features in both the Peru Current and the eastern South Equatorial Current of the Pacific Ocean.
