SeaWinds on QuikSCAT Level 3 Daily Gridded 0.25 Degree Browse Images

This dataset contains images of daily averaged ocean surface wind vectors derived from the gridded Level 3 QuikSCAT ocean surface wind vector dataset. These images are provided in GIF format at 900x600 pixel resolution. Vector arrows are colored according to wind speed, and a color bar is available to estimate the wind speed. The arrow is directionally oriented with the flow direction of the 10 m ocean surface wind velocity retrievals derived from the NASA SeaWinds scatterometer aboard the QuikSCAT satellite platform.
