ASCAT Coastal Winds at 12.5 km Swath Grid - Metop A

Abstract:
Equivalent neutral 10m winds over the global oceans, with specific sampling to provide as many observations as possible near the coasts. Better than using this archived NRT product, please use the reprocessed ASCAT winds data records (EO:EUM:DAT:METOP:OSI-150-A, EO:EUM:DAT:METOP:OSI-150-B). This product can be downloaded as numerical data in EUMETView NG, where it is provided through a Web Feature Service (WFS).
