Abstract

AVHRR remote sensing data for sea surface temperature during the first successful satellite track of a basking shark, Cetorhinus maximus on 6 July 1982 is analysed using the new composite front map technique. The shark is shown to have been swimming, presumed to be filter-feeding zooplankton, in warm coastal water off the west coast of Scotland parallel to the line of a thermal front.
