SEASAT SCATTEROMETER DEALIASED OCEAN WIND VECTORS (Wentz et al.)

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

Contains Seasat-A Scatterometer (SASS) wind vector measurements for the entire Seasat mission, from July 1978 until October 1978. The data are global and presented chronologically in by swath. Each record contains data binned in 100 km cells. No wind vectors are computed for the cells along the left and right edges of the swath. Wind direction ambiguities are resolved using a global weather prediction model. This complete dataset is the result of the reprocessing efforts on behalf of Frank Wentz, Robert Atlas, and Michael Freilich.
