Quality assurance analysis of SeaWinds-on-QuikSCAT surface winds
Entry ID: SeaWinds_Ambiguity_Quality

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains Quality flags for SeaWinds-on-QuikSCAT L2B unique wind ambiguity selection. A model-based approach is used to determine ambiguity selection consistency and identify possible ambiguity selection errors. A multi-level flag is produced for each L2B wind vector estimate.
