SeaWinds on ADEOS-II Level 3 Gridded Ocean Wind Vectors (JPL)

The SeaWinds on ADEOS-II Level 3 ocean vector winds on a 0.25 degree grid contains daily data from ascending and descending passes; where adjacent satellite passes overlap, the most recent value overwrites the previous value for that particular wind vector cell. Wind vectors are accurate to within 2 m/s (vector speed) and 20 degrees (vector direction). Rain flags are provided for each wind vector cell to assist in identifying potential rain contamination. Wind vectors are set to a value of 0 when within 30 km of land/ice boundaries or where there is ambiguous or non-existent measurements available. This data utilizes the recalibrated model function called the QSCAT-1/F13 processing algorithm, adopted in July of 2006.
