QSCAT (Ku-2001) Ocean Winds Derived by Locally Weighted Regression Interpolation (Version 1e)

| DOI: 10.5065/Y7CX-E481

This revision is Version 1e for QSCAT Ku-2001 ocean surface winds derived using a locally weighted regression interpolation method. The region of influence (ROI) varies depending on the quality of the resultant interpolation. ROI of 3 and 5 degrees (latitude by longitude) have been used. The resultant grids are 0.5 degrees and 3 hour resolution. The coverage is for 40S to the 70S.

The QSCAT (Ku-2001) satellite data were provided by Remote Sensing Systems.

Notice 07/28/2006: JPL PO.DAAC has initiated reprocessing of all ADEOS-II and QuikSCAT data with superior algorithms for retrievals in high wind speed and light rain areas. This reprocessing could effect this dataset. More information is available at JPL PO.DAAC.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
