    Abstract

    Presents the detection of sea surface temperature (SST) in the Gulf of Finland using AVHRR data. AVHRR imagery is evaluated as a main data source for monitoring SST as a measure of upwelling dynamics. Sea surface effects (SSE), however, cause a temperature difference between the sea surface skin and water below the surface. Therefore, SSE are taken into account as one of the major error factors in the SST estimation.
