Environmental Temperatures and Weather

The world and the various environmental factors that exist are regularly probed, prodded, surveyed and reported on in terms of weather reports, global warming (or cooling) phenomena and more.

The sea surface temperature (SST) is monitored from satellites and ships at sea. Land and atmosphere temperatures are similarly reported and recorded. It is an extensive use of temperature sensors of all types (satellites, of course, use non-contact sensor to read the earth surface).

This page is here because there are so many temperature sensor measurement results reported regularly on the Web about these aspects of sensor use that it would be silly to not at least mention them.

So, we provide a few links of interest, too.

If you have a favorite or one you think should be here, let us know via our feedback page. We put one of our recent finds at the top of the column to the right, the Vaisala Group's Lightning Explorer. It's about real-time lighting and more around the world in a cool graphic interface, not about temperature, but it's a pretty neat web page, IOHO.

Meanwhile, you can check your local weather right here: The example is our location in Pennsylvania USA.

Thank you for visiting! Do come back.

Water/Marine and Earth Surface Temperatures

Near Real Time Sea Surface Temperature
Discussion of the Earth's hydrosphere, as displayed by the Smithsonian Earth Today exhibit.

Sea Surface Temperature Satellite Image Archive
This page provides access to the University of Rhode Island, Graduate School of Oceanography's archive of sea surface temperature satellite images. These images are processed Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data from NOAA satellites. The images depict sea surface temperature.

DOE's Multispectral Thermal Imager (MTI) Satellite Home Page
MTI's spectral bands are carefully selected to collect data needed to derive a broad range of information on facilities and activities, including surface temperatures, materials, water quality, and vegetation health. To enhance accuracy, additional bands provide simultaneous information on atmospheric water vapor, aerosol content, and sub-visual cloud presence. A recent presentation discussed how Earth surface temperatures can be measured from space with an calibration accuracy of a few degrees.

NOAA's Optimum Interpolation Sea Surface Temperature Analysis
The optimum interpolation (OI) sea surface temperature (SST) analysis is produced weekly on a one-degree grid. The analysis uses in situ and satellite SST plus SST's simulated by sea-ice cover.

NASA's Visible Earth-Oceans
Sea Surface Temperatures, Water temperature and much more from NASA'a many observing platforms.

Modern Average Global Sea-Surface Temperature
U.S. Geological Survey Digital Data Series DDS-10. The purpose of this data set is to provide paleoclimate researchers with a tool for estimating the average seasonal variation in sea-surface temperature (SST) throughout the modern world ocean and for estimating the modern monthly and weekly sea-surface temperature at any given oceanic location. The data contained in this data set are derived from the NOAA Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer Multichannel Sea Surface Temperature data (AVHRR MCSST), which are obtainable from the Distributed Active Archive Center at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif. The JPL tapes contain weekly images of SST from October 1981 through December 1990 in nine regions of the world ocean: North Atlantic, Eastern North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Agulhas, Indian, Southeast Pacific, Southwest Pacific, Northeast Pacific, and Northwest Pacific.
