Infra-red sensing of upper air temperature over Indian seas by Nimbus III.

M. C. Sharma and G. S. Sarwade

Satellite Infra-Red Spectrometer (SIRS) data for a few days has been used to study the temperature distribution in the upper air over the data-sparse region of Indian Seas. The vertical temperature profiles so calculated are compared with the actual temperature sondings of nearby meteorological stations representative of the conditions in the Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea.
