DYNAMO: ASCAT 12.5 km Level 2 Ocean Surface Wind Vector Data
This data set contains operational near-real-time global Level 2 ocean surface wind vector retrievals from the Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT) on the MetOp-A satellite at 12.5 km sampling resolution (note: the effective resolution is 25 km). These data were provided by the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) Ocean and Sea Ice Scatterometer Application Facility (OSI SAF) and were retrieved from the NASA Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center. The data are in NetCDF format.
