High wind evaluation in the Southern Ocean

  title={High wind evaluation in the Southern Ocean},
  author={Xiaojun Yuan}
Space based scatterometer instruments provide crucial surface wind measurements with high resolution over global oceans. Mid-latitude regions in the Southern Ocean are unique places to evaluate scatterometer winds at high wind bands because these regions host the strongest wind fields at the ocean surface. The objective of this study is to evaluate QuikSCAT wind measurements by comparing them with reanalysis and weather station data in the Southern Ocean with an emphasis on high wind bands.
