A new set of cross-calibrated, multi-satellite ocean surface wind data sets is described. The principal data set covers the global ocean for the period beginning in 1987 with six-hour and 25-km resolution and is produced by combining all ocean surface wind speed observations from SSM/I, AMSR-E, and TMI, and all ocean surface wind vector observations from(More)
[1] Meteorological observing systems are continuously being developed to improve our knowledge of the atmosphere and our forecasting capabilities. Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSEs) are a general technique to assess a priori the potential impact of future instruments, which is particularly important in the case of spaceborne systems.

Fronts are significant meteorological phenomena of interest. The extraction of frontal systems from observations and model data can greatly benefit many kinds of research and applications in atmospheric sciences. Due to the huge amount of observational and model data available nowadays, automated extraction of front systems is necessary. This paper presents(More)
