This paper introduces satellite remote sensing of sea-surface temperatures and ocean colour studies. The basic radiative transfer equations and available satellite sensor systems are presented. The final part of the paper focuses on temperature applications. Sea surface temperature data derived from available satellite data are presented and discussed.
