Space-borne scatterometers are instruments designed to measure the radar backscatter of the earth’s surface at a variety of azimuth angles from orbiting satellites. Empirical model functions relate these backscatter measurements to geophysical parameters such as wind speed and direction. For SeaWinds on QuikSCAT, standard wind retrieval is performed on wind vector cells of 25 x 25 kilometers in size. Because of the inherent spatial over-sampling, image reconstruction techniques may be applied… CONTINUE READING
