|Preferred Label||Remote Measurements and Research Company Remote Ocean Surface Radiometer|
|Definition||An autonomous radiometer for measurement of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-traceable sea-surface skin temperatures (SSST). The standard installation includes the Remote Ocean Surface Radiometer (ROSR), comprising a Heitronics infrared radiometer contained within a waterproof housing, and an automatic shutter triggered by an optical rain detector. The instrument package is connected to a data acquisition unit, allowing GPS input, and an optional Iridium satellite short burst data transmitter, to transmit ship position, speed, and SSST data. The ROSR is designed for use in support of air-sea interaction studies, or satellite calibration and validation activities. The instrument is designed to make autonomous observations from a ship or buoy for up to six months in all weather conditions, with a NIST traceable accuracy of +/- 0.1 degC.|
