ASCAT Coastal Winds at 12.5 km - Metop - Regional Data Service

Abstract:
Equivalent neutral 10m winds over the global oceans, with specific sampling to provide as many observations as possible near the coasts. The data is acquired from the EUMETSAT Advanced Retransmission Service (EARS) network of Direct Readout stations. Additionally from Metop-A the last 30 minutes of ASCAT data in the main Svalbard data dump are processed. All data are processed jointly by the EARS ground system and the Koningklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Instituut (KNMI) within 45 minutes. This product is intended for assimilation in Regional Numerical Weather prediction models, where high timeliness is very important in order to address the short model cut-off times.
