Retrieval of SST Algorithm Coefficients at South China Sea

Ng Hou Guan


The current operational sea surface temperature (SST) algorithm coefficients were not suitable to be applied at South China Sea. Therefore, the algorithm coefficients that could be specially used for South China Sea were required to be calibrated. The study was conducted to find a set value of MCSST and NLSST algorithm coefficients that were suitable to be used at South China, and also to investigate the effect of the haze to SST algorithm. The calibrated algorithm with the new set of coefficients was proved to give more accurate result compared to SST data calculated by using SST algorithm in ENVI. The SST algorithm of ENVI was cited from the NOAA SST algorithm that applied the global algorithm coefficients. Besides that, the study also showed that the haze would affect the SST algorithm.
