The Effect of Rain on Satellite Sensor Estimates of Surface Roughness Conditions and on the Air-Sea Momentum Flux

Abstract

Changes in the sea surface roughness from the combined effects of wind and rain, on scales of tens of kilometers, are being studied using the QuikSCAT scatterometer (NRCS) and simultaneous NEXRAD three-dimensional measurements of rain. The studies of air-sea interaction, related to surface fluxes. The results to be presented were acquired during a… (More)
