Harmonic analysis of satellite sensed temperatures along latitudes of both hemispheres for the period 15 May to 28 July 1966
Krall, John James
MetadataShow full item record
The object of the study is to examine the climatology of NIMBUS II satellite sensed window-channel equivalent black body temperatures for the period 15 May 1966 to 28 July 1966. Fourier analysis was applied to these temperatures at selected latitudes in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The total variance, as well as the percentage contribution to variance by individual waves 1 through 8, along the selected latitudes is examined. In addition correlation coefficients between adjacent key latitudes a recomputed and interpreted.
