The SeaWinds Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document
Entry ID: 01-seawinds-99

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The purpose of the SeaWinds Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) is to describe the theoretical bases for the major scientific algorithms that will be used in processing the SeaWinds (SWS) data. Satellite-borne radar scatterometers, such as "SeaWinds", are the only remote sensing systems presently capable of providing accurate, frequent, high-resolution measurements of ocean near-surface ...
