Abstract

Daily Meteosat images for 1989 have been analysed for the purpose of mapping surface temperature and rainfall in Ghana. The images in the time-series are georeferenced and the maximum value composite (MVC) technique is applied to the temperature calibrated IR-channel images after a cloud screening of the images. The cloud covered areas are outlined and traced using the Meteosat visible channels. The paper then discusses how the outlined procedure can be applied in an environmental monitoring context. It is found that apart from the month of June statistical significant linear relationships are obtained
