Satellite data on sea wind

Blended sea wind data product from several satellites including QuikSCAT, SSMIs, TMI and AMSR-E. The product is gridded and has global coverage with 0.25 deg x 0.25 deg spatial resolution. The temporal resolution is 6 hours The data was imported from NOAA National Climatic Data Center

The product was derived from multiple satellite observations: DMSP SSMI F08, F10, F11, F13,F14 F15; TMI; QuikSCAT; AMSR-E while wind direction was taken from NCEP Reanalysis-2 (that is why the product is called “blended”).

Below is eastward wind speed for 10 meters above sea surface (u10m) on the 28th of August, 2005.
