OW ASCAT Ocean Surface Winds

Metadata Updated: February 8, 2018

The Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT) sensor onboard the EUMETSAT MetOp polar-orbiting satellite provides ocean surface wind observations by means of radar scatterometry. The data is available as 1-day composites with global coverage at 0.25 degrees (approximately 25 km/pix). Total wind speed, as well as zonal and meridional wind speed information is available since 2013-06-26 through the present.
