Short NameUCLA_DEALIASED_SASS_L3
DescriptionContains dealiased ocean wind vector components (zonal and meridional) derived from the Seasat-A Scatterometer (SASS) provided on a global 1x1 degree grid. Dealiasing of the SASS data was achieved manually using ship observations in a joint effort between JPL, UCLA and AES. This data set underwent restoration in 1997. Data are provided in ASCII text files at six hour intervals.
