Paper Abstract

Collocation of WindSat brightness temperatures and retrieved windspeeds with Stepped Frequency Microwave Radiometer (SFMR) on board NOAA WP-3D Orion aircraft are used to analyze and validate WindSat data under extreme wind conditions. For this study, the data presented are from September 2003 during Hurricane Fabian (03 September 2003). Temporal and spatial variability within the SFMR data stream are discussed in relation to both the WindSat brightness temperatures and derived windspeeds.
