Geologic Framework and Processes of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin
Sea Surface Temperature
These images of Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana, were derived from data collected by the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) onboard NOAA polar-orbiting weather satellites. Sea Surface Temperature is derived from thermal infrared wavelengths using standard algorithms developed by NOAA. These values have not been validated. Clouds are masked in gray; land in brown.
