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 OSI SAF and distributed 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.
