Abstract:

Enhanced products based on satellite-derived ocean surface winds will be distributed to Navy and commercial vessels, and civilian forecasters, with improved accuracy and much greater ease of interpretation. Two additional products, based on these improved observations, will also improve the ease and speed of interpretation and ocean modeling. A third product will provide an improved alternative for ocean modeling. The technology will be transferred to NOAANESDIS for routine use and distribution.
