One of the important applications of satellite surface wind observations is to increase the accuracy of weather analyses and forecasts. Satellite surface wind data can improve numerical weather prediction (NWP) model forecasts in two ways. (Acronyms are listed in appendix A.) First, these data contribute to improved analyses of the surface wind field, and, through the data assimilation process, of the atmospheric mass and motion fields in the free atmosphere above the surface. Second… CONTINUE READING
