  • Abstract
    The NASA Scatterometer (NSCAT) Level 2.5 high-resolution reduced MGDR contains only wind vector data (sigma-0 is excluded) in 25 km wind vector cell (WVC) swaths which contain daily data from ascending and descending passes. Wind vectors are accurate to within 2 m/s (vector speed) and 20 degrees (vector direction). Wind vectors are not considered valid in rain contaminated regions; rain flags and precipitation information are not provided. Data is flagged where measurements are either missing or ambiguous. In the presence of land or sea ice winds values are set to 0. Wind vectors are processed using the NSCAT-2 geophysical model function.
