Abstract
The new generation GOES, with significantly higher spatial resolution and signal to noise ratio than its predecessors for the split window channel, makes it feasible for the first time to derive SST from a geostationary platform. The GOES data are well calibrated and navigated. The temporal information from GOES can be used to identify residual cloud contamination and detect diurnal variation of SST. All these features are valuable assets for monitoring the earth environment from space.
