The Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) Monthly 1-degree Merged Wind Climatology netCDF dataset V7R01 provides global gridded wind speed data over ocean areas. This dataset contains a 12-month climatology using January 1, 1988 to March 31, 2016 data, monthly anomaly maps, a trend map with associated global and tropical wind speed time series, and a time-latitude plot. The wind climatology dataset is a merged ocean product constructed using the version-7 (V7) passive microwave geophysical ocean products made publicly available by Remote Sensing Systems ( Ocean wind measurements used to create this dataset were acquired from the following satellite microwave radiometers: SSM/I F08 through F15, SSMIS F16 and F17, AMSR-E, AMSR-2, and WindSat. The radiometers used to construct this dataset were inter-calibrated at the brightness temperature level, while the V7 ocean products were produced using a consistent processing methodology across sensors.
