Abstract

For the study of the ocean south of Japan, the HIGHER spatial resolution Sea surface temperature (HIGHERS) data have been produced from the AVHRR/ NOAA data. The grid size is 0.075 degree and is much smaller than that of the usual tea surface temperature (SST) analysis field, which is gridded at most in 1 degree. In order to calculate accurate SST, the split-window Melti-Channel SST method is applied to cloudless pixels, which are detected with a cloud detection algorithm. The accuracy of the HIGHERS data is checked in comparison with the in-situ observation data.
