Improved Estimation of Shortwave Radiation Over Equatorial Indian Ocean Using Geostationary Satellite Data


An algorithm for improved estimation of daily net shortwave radiation (SWR) over the equatorial Indian Ocean is proposed in this study. This makes use of high temporal sampling by geostationary satellites (in our study, Meteosat-7) of outgoing longwave radiation and in situ observations in the equatorial Indian Ocean warm pool region. Results indicate… (More)
