SEASAT SCATTEROMETER DEALIASED OCEAN WIND VECTORS (JPL-UCLA-AES)
Entry ID: PODAAC-SASSX-L3UCD

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Contains dealiased ocean wind vector components (zonal and meridional) derived from the Seasat-A Scatterometer (SASS) provided on a global 1x1 degree grid. Dealiasing of the SASS data was achieved manually using ship observations in a joint effort between JPL, UCLA and AES. This data set underwent restoration in 1997. Data are provided in ASCII text files at six hour intervals.
