Using a telecommunication tower installed on a pier approximately 7km from the coastline, a set of ultrasonic sensors were installed at 10m and 25m height. Sea Surface Temperature (SST) values were also derived from Geostationary Satellite Imagers with a spatial resolution of approximately 6km and hourly data sets. Then, the SST hourly data from the GEOS satellite was synchronized in space and time with the onsite measured data from the offshore tower. The evaluation process showed the persistent of a shallow stable boundary layer conditioned by a highly directional wind patterns which blow almost parallel to the coastline.
