Abstract

With a Phosdac 1000 Digital Color Analyzer, the writer processed the images of the meteorological satellite GMS-1 and NOAA-5 IR band to enhance the information on sea surface temperature (SST), which is then used to plot sea surface isotherms. This paper briefly describes the winter SST pattern in the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea as obtained by application of the above method, in combination with measurements made by some stations in situ, and makes a preliminary discussion on the causes of formation of these patterns.
