ERS-1 10-m Vector Wind Data in netCDF Format

Abstract: The University of Washington Joint Institute for the Study of the
Atmosphere and Ocean (JISAO) offers ERS-1 10-m Vector Wind data in
netCDF format. The winds were time-spaced filtered and averaged into
1-degree latitude-longitude regions by Mr. Lixin Zeng
(, with the time-space filtering employed
to remove spurious features associated with sampling (Zeng and Levy,
1995, J. Geophys. Res.,100,5133-5142).

Datasets Available
- The zonal wind component in netCDF format. (4.2 Mb)
- The meridional wind component in netCDF format. (4.2 Mb)

This data may be freely downloaded from the JISAO WWW site.
