dataset : NSCAT Level 3 Gridded Mean Wind Fields (IFREMER)

NASA JPL Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center


NSCAT Level 3 Gridded Mean Wind Fields (IFREMER)

The NASA Scatterometer (NSCAT) Level 3 Mean Wind Fields dataset is produced and distributed by IFREMER/CERSAT. Weekly and monthly mean ocean surface wind vectors, wind stress, wind divergence, and stress curl fields are provided on a global 1x1 degree grid. Standard errors of each parameter are also computed and provided as complimentary gridded fields. An objective statistical interpolation is performed to reconstruct gap-filled and averaged synoptic fields from discrete observations over each time period. This dataset is part of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) package.


This dataset was released on February 05, 2011.

The time range for this dataset is September 16, 1996 to June 30, 1997.

The spatial range for this dataset is -79.5° to 79.5° latitude, and 0° to 360° longitude. map (center)

This dataset uses data from an instance of the nasa-scatterometer instrument on the advanced-earth-observing-satellite platform.
