Jastrow, R., and M. Halem, 1973: Accuracy and coverage of temperature data derived from the IR radiometer on the NOAA 2 satellite. J. Atmos. Sci., 30, 958-963, doi:10.1175/1520-0469(1973)030<0958:AACOTD>2.0.CO;2.

The Vertical Temperature Profile Radiometer (VTPR) on the NOAA 2 satellite has been returning useful temperature data since shortly after the time of its launch on 15 October 1972. The principal prupose of this instrument is the provision of daily temperature soundings on an operational basis over the oceans, as an addition to the primarily ground-based global data network used by the National Weather Service. We would like to report on results obtained with VTPR data in a non-operational research project, with the eventual aim of determining the potential value of satellite temperature observations as a separate data base independent of conventional observations.
