[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains Level 2B science-quality ocean surface wind vector retrievals from the NASA SeaWinds scatterometer aboard the QuikSCAT satellite platform. The retrievals are provided on a non-uniform grid within the swath at 25 km pixel resolution. Each L2B file corresponds to a specific orbital revolution (rev) number, which begins at the southernmost point of the ascending orbit. An ASCII ... View entire text
