  • Abstract
    This dataset contains the standard error corresponding to the ocean surface wind speed retrievals from SeaWinds on QuikSCAT binned monthly on 1 degree grids. The coverage is from August 1999 through October 2009. This datasat was generated to support the CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5) portion of PCMDI (Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison) and was first made available via the Earth System Grid: http://esg-gateway.jpl.nasa.gov/. This dataset was provided by the NASA QuikSCAT project and derived directly from the QuikSCAT Level 2B dataset, which can be accessed here: http://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/QSCAT_LEVEL_2B. The SeaWinds instrument is a conical scanning pencil-beam radar, with dual-beam and dual-polarization capability, operating at Ku-band to provide all-weather ocean surface wind vector retrievals.
