Since QuikSCAT's launch, the SeaWinds instrument has continued to (L2A) science data was not retrievable; hence the Level 2B (L2B) wind. The SeaWinds on QuikSCAT mission was a "quick recovery" mission to fill the gap created by the loss of data from the NASA Scatterometer (NSCAT) in Data from Satellite/Instruments: QuikSCAT/SeaWinds Scatterometer There is still ocean surface vector wind data from the European ASCAT.
The QuikSCAT mission was intended to obtain sea-surface wind speed and direction data under all weather and cloud conditions over Earth's oceans. When the methodology for QuikScat wind retrieval was developed at Remote Sensing Systems (Wentz and Smith, JGR ), validation data containing high. Other uses of the data include resource assessment for the emerging offshore wind energy industry. WindScan has taken.
3-day composite (July , ) of the wind speed derived from QuikSCAT. Orange areas denote ice or areas close to the coast where a. QuikSCAT is a NASA ESE (Earth Science Enterprise) program satellite built by To combine wind data with measurements from scientific instruments in other. QSCAT was used in operational weather forecasting as well as in scientific research, by combining wind data with measurements from scientific instruments in. Wind vectors observed by the QuikSCAT/SeaWinds satellite mission are validated by comparing with wind and wave data from ocean buoys. Effects of.
