SST Validation Description

The SeaBASS sea surface temperature (SST) validation system is designed to provide ground-truth of satellite-borne measurements via comparisons with coincident in situ temperature measurements. Successful match-ups are compiled into one global file per date for each different sensor and made available via a simple web-based search engine.


This article explains how to search for and download results, how to work with validation files, and provides background information describing the steps involved in creating validation match-ups.
