DYCOMS-II: QuikSCAT Wind Vector Data
The QuikSCAT Wind Vector Data is one of several satellite data sets collected by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project. QuikSCAT is a microwave scatterometer launched in June 1999. The QSCAT data are stored in orbit files and include wind speed and direction at a height of 10 meters retrieved from measurements of the QSCAT backscattered power. The data cover the period from 7-28 July 2001 and are in binary format. The data and readme information were acquired from Remote Sensing Systems (www.ssmi.com) and are from Version 3.0 of their processing algorithms.
