Zhang, B, Zhang, YZ, Song, KS, Zhang, B (2004). Detection of sea surface temperature (SST) and salinity using thermal infrared data of AVHRR and MODIS in the Gulf of Bohai Sea of China. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF INFRARED AND MILLIMETER WAVES, 25(1), 129-137.

Abstract
This paper presents the detection of sea surface temperature (SST) and salinity in the Gulf of Bohai Sea of China using thermal infrared (TIR) data of Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). Both AVHRR and MODIS imageries are evaluated as main data sources for monitoring SST as a measure of upwelling's dynamic. The relationship between SST and salinity in the area is also discussed during 1997-2000 derived from AVHRR data and then examined using MODIS data of 2000. The obtained results indicated that both AVHRR and MODIS are useful to detect SST and salinity in the study area.
