Abstract:
Ocean surface winds from ERS are available upon request, starting from 1992 to 1996, at 1 degree latitude by 1 degree longitude resolution, every 12 hours. For the gridding method, please refer to the article by Tang and Liu [JPL Publication 96-19,1996]. The ERS data set was produced by Wenqing Tang and W. Timothy Liu with supports from the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Interdiscipline Science Program, the NASA Scatterometer (NSCAT) Project, and the NASA/NOAA Enhanced Data Set Program.
