Research highlights  Examination of SST and SPM images of the southern North Sea shows pronounced mesoscale variability.  The Rhine ROFI, East-Anglia Plume and a seasonal thermal front dominate SST and SPM signals.  Harmonic analysis highlights pronounced seasonal and spring–neap variability.  Tides and waves control stratification and hence the visibility of near-surface SPM in the images. Abstract Thermal and optical remote sensing data were used to investigate the spatial and temporal… CONTINUE READING
