Comparison between satellite image advective velocities, dynamic topography, and surface drifter trajectories Journal Article uri icon



  • Recently, many investigators [Kelly, 1983, 1985; LaViolette, 1984; Vastano and Borders, 1984; Vastano and Reid, 19851 have studied the problem of computing surface velocities from high‐resolution infrared satellite images of sea surface temperature (SST) patterns. The frequent synoptic coverage of large ocean areas by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) polar‐orbiting satellites, carrying the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), motivates oceanographers to better utilize these data for studies of surface circulation variability.
