Summary
Abstract: This dataset consists of twelve variables for global seasonal cycles of the wind and wind stress fields estimated from the 10-year record (September 1999 - October 2009) of wind measurements by the NASA QuikSCAT scatterometer. Seasonal cycles for these variables were estimated using harmonic analysis where each multi-year time series of ... View entire text
