SeaWinds on ADEOS-II Level 3 Sigma-0 Global Rectangular Browse Images
Entry ID: PODAAC-SEABY-GLBIM


Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains GIF images of global, rectangular-gridded, daily averaged Sigma-0 retrievals from the SeaWinds L1B retrievals, which are generated using a Scatterometer Image Reconstruction (SIR) technique developed by Dr. David Long at Brigham Young University (BYU). The SeaWinds scatterometer scans at two nominal incidence angles, 46 degrees and 54.1 degrees, corresponding to the inner and ... View entire text
