Microwave measurement of sea surface temperatureSEASAT-A microwave radiometry is considered for scientific studies related to sea surface temperature measurements. Its limited swath width negates certain studies at angles greater than about 30 deg from nadir. Symmetrical scans appear best for operational experiments. It is recommended that a mode of scan be incorporated which permits data to be collected from nadir up to 11 55-60 deg from nadir, even if a symmetrical scan is necessary.
