Paper Abstract

In this paper a study regarding the role of the objective function used in the wind field reconstruction procedure from normalized radar cross section measurements achieved by means of a microwave scatterometer is detailed. The relevance of the study has practical interests since the capability to best estimate the sea surface wind field from satellite measurements is going to affect the climatological models and weather forecast models once that the full deployment of such powerful remote sensing tools will ensure a sufficient temporal and spatial coverage. The results hereafter shown suggest as the best objective function the WLSL one.
