SEASAT SCATTEROMETER DEALIASED OCEAN WIND VECTORS (Atlas)
Entry ID: PODAAC-SSAT2-DAX01

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Contains wind speeds and directions derived from the Seasat-A Scatterometer (SASS), presented chronologically by swath for the period between 7 July 1978 and 10 October 1978. Robert Atlas et al. (1987) produced this product using an objective ambiguity removal scheme to dealias the wind vector data binned at 100 km cells, which were calculated by Frank Wentz.
