REMOTE OCEAN SURFACE RADIOMETER (ROSR)
Continuous Shipboard Seasurface Skin Temperature



The Remote Ocean Surface Radiometer (ROSR) is a next generation sea surface radiometer.

SSST Output string (2.5 min rate)
This string provides all the parameters necessary to compute SSST.

where 
v1,v2,vsky,vsea = mean pointing angles,
k1,k2,ksky,ksea = mean radiometer digital output,
T1, T2 = black body temperatures,
vpoint = seaward pointing angle including mean roll,
emis = emissivity at vpoint,
ssst = computed sea surface skin temperature,
ch = NMEA checksum.
