Paper Abstract

A microwave scatterometer of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of the United States, SeaWinds, was launched on the second Advanced Earth Observing System (ADEOS-II) of the Japanese Space Agency (NASDA) in December 2002. A preliminary data set was released to the Ocean Vector Wind Science Team (OVWST) for calibration/validation on July 15, 2003. A comparison of this data set with ocean buoy measurements was performed and the quality of the data was found to be very similar to that from an identical scatterometer deployed on NASA QuikSCAT mission. An overview of potential unique impact of SeaWinds on ADEOS-2 is also presented.
