A Cross-calibrated, Multiplatform Ocean Surface Wind Velocity Product for Meteorological and Oceanographic Applications
Abstract The ocean surface wind mediates exchanges between the ocean and the atmosphere. These air–sea exchange processes are critical for understanding and predicting atmosphere, ocean, and waveExpand
A Multiyear Global Surface Wind Velocity Dataset Using SSM/I Wind Observations
The Special Sensor Microwave Imagers (SSM/I) aboard three DMSP satellites have improved a large dataset of surface wind speeds over the global oceans from July 1987 to the present. These data areExpand
Surface Turbulent Heat and Momentum Fluxes over Global Oceans Based on the Goddard Satellite Retrievals, Version 2 (GSSTF2)
Abstract Information on the turbulent fluxes of momentum, latent heat, and sensible heat at the air–sea interface is essential in improving model simulations of climate variations and in climateExpand
The Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) mission
The Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) mission will make the first global, space-based measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) with the precision, resolution, and coverage needed toExpand
AIRS: Improving Weather Forecasting and Providing New Data on Greenhouse Gases.
SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS. The AIRS instrument has met its primary scientific objective to improve weather prediction and to retrieve tem-perature and precipitable water vapor profiles with accuraciesExpand
New Ocean Winds Satellite Mission to Probe Hurricanes and Tropical Convection
AbstractThe Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) is a new NASA earth science mission scheduled to be launched in 2016 that focuses on tropical cyclones (TCs) and tropical convection.Expand
The Effect of SST and Soil Moisture Anomalies on GLA Model Simulations of the 1988 U.S. Summer Drought.
Abstract A series of simulations of the late spring and early summer of 1988 were conducted in order to study the relative importance of different boundary forcings to the Goddard Laboratory forExpand
Air‐sea fluxes retrieved from special sensor microwave imager data
A method has been developed to estimate daily surface fluxes of momentum and sensible and latent heat over the global oceans using a stability-dependent bulk scheme. Daily fluxes are computed fromExpand
Impact of the Atlantic warm pool on United States landfalling hurricanes
[1] The 2010 Atlantic hurricane season was extremely active, but no hurricanes made landfall in the United States, raising a question of what dictated the hurricane track. Here we use observationsExpand
