Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains images of daily averaged ocean surface wind vectors derived from the gridded Level 3 QuikSCAT ocean surface wind vector dataset. These images are provided in GIF format at 900x600 pixel resolution. Vector arrows are colored according to wind speed, and a color bar is available to estimate the wind speed. The arrow is directionally oriented with the flow direction of the 10 m ocean surface wind velocity retrievals derived from the NASA SeaWinds scatterometer aboard the QuikSCAT satellite platform. For more information on the QuikSCAT platform and mission, please visit http://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/OceanWind/QuikSCAT . Disclaimer: this dataset is meant for quick-look purposes only and is not intended for science-quality research applications.
