Scatterometer Processing Packages - Multimission

Abstract:
Observation operators for SCAT, ASCAT, SeaWinds, OSCAT, HSCAT and RapidScat. Scatterometer data processors for Ku-band pencil beam instruments (PenWP) and C-band fan beam instruments (AWDP) are supplied and maintained by the NWP SAF. These packages process radar backscatter data to wind vector field solutions featuring: *Local representation of the full wind vector PDF based on the radar backscatter measurement input (Multiple Solution Scheme), State of the art quality control procedures, Two-dimensional variational ambiguity removal.
