Paula track on Atlantic Ocean SST image of 11 October (322 Kb) This image
represents the average composite sea surface temperature (SST) derived from
NOAA satellite AVHRR data over the 7 days ending 11 October 2010. The
averaging is done to remove clouds. The streaking artifacts are due to problems with the NOAA-17 satellite data. The temperature scale for SST is
24C to 34C. The track of Paula is overlaid on this image.
