Experimental Gridded Wind Vectors from Satellite Scatterometers
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
The Experimental Gridded Wind Vector Products from Satellite Scatterometers are derived from wind retrievals from the European (EUMETSAT) ASCAT-A sand B instruments on MetOp A and B. The following link to EUMETSAT gives detailed technical information concerning the ASCAT instruments, ASCAT technical description. Gridded files are generated hourly in GRIB2 format by the Ocean Prediction Center on the NCEP Compute Farm server system. Once generated the experimental gridded files will be transferred to the NCEP RZDM ftp site and then made available via a link from the NWS Ocean Prediction Center website. Graphical images will be generated every 15 minutes using the GEMPAK software and uploaded to the web in gif format.
