Abstract: Validations of satellite-derived sea surface temperature (SST) and wind speed (WS) were carried out with sea-truth measurements obtained from moored data buoy and ship during July-August 1999. The SST sensed by multi –frequency scanning microwave radiometer (MSMR) showed significant departures from sea-truth measurements. The difference in SST (sea-truth-MSMR) was negative and large during daytime and vice versa during nighttime. Sea-truth measurements of wind speed indicated that they were always lower (2-5 ms-1) than the MSMR winds. The derived correction factors reduced the biases of satellite data.
