SST Validation Description
This article is still under construction (2019-03-27)
The SeaBASS sea surface temperature (SST) validation system is designed to provide ground-truth comparisons between in situ measurements and coincident satellite-borne ocean color instrument observations. Per satellite sensor, the results are compiled into files containing all successful match-ups from around the globe for a given calendar day (i.e., 1 validation file per satellite sensor per day). Users may search for results using a web-based search engine or API. This article briefly summarizes how to download these results, as well as describing the steps involved in this system of processing and creating match-ups.
