Sea Surface Temperature (SST) sensed from infrared satellite sensors has a limitation caused by clouds cover. This limitation affects SST data to be not optimal because there are many empty areas without SST information. Gap Filling is a simple method for combining multitemporal satellite data to generate cloud free data. This research will apply Gap Filling method from two SST data, namely Himawari-8 and Multiscale Ultrahigh Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (MUR-SST). Cloud free daily SST data generated by this method has ~2 Km spatial resolution and daily temporal resolution. Validation of cloud-free SST data using in situ measurement data shows Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD) value 0.29 is smaller than MAD value from MUR-SST and Himawari-8 data. High correlation between cloud free SST data and insitu data is reflected from Kendall's Tau correlation value of 0.7966 or 79.66% and R2 with 0.93 value. These results indicate that the cloud free daily SST data can be used as valid estimation of SST condition in Bali Strait.
