Paper Abstract

Satellite altimeters are widely used in the research of ocean dynamics. Data fusion methods such as Kriging method, successive correction method and inverse distance to a power method are used in this paper, and the appropriate parameters for these methods are achieved for the fusion of sea surface wind speed (SSW) data from GFO, Jason-1, Jason-2 and Envisat altimeters in China Seas and nearby. It is shown that (1) SSW fusion needs at least 3 satellites; (2) different methods have little impact on the merged result when using enough data; (3) the characteristics and distribution of result are agreed well with the statistical data in the study area.
