Wind Diffusivity Current, QuikSCAT SeaWinds, 0.25?, Global, Science Quality, 1999-2009 (1 Day), Lon+/-180

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

NOAA CoastWatch distributes science quality Ekman current (in zonal, meridional, and modulus sets) and Ekman upwelling data. This data begins with wind velocity measurements from the SeaWinds instrument onboard NASA's QuikSCAT satellite. SeaWinds is a microwave scatterometer designed to measure surface winds over the global ocean. NOAA CoastWatch processes wind velocity to wind stress and wind stress curl, and finally to Ekman current and Ekman upwelling. (This is a 1 day composite.)
