Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A colocated data set of QSCAT wind vector and sigma-o data with wind and wave ocean bouy observations from the NDBC bouy network in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and Gulf of Mexico and Hawaiian Islands is assembled for validation. Also included are wind stress and high-resolution directional wave measurements from three air-sea interaction spar bouys off the coast of North Carolina from the two month SHOWEX experiment in Fall 1999. Analyses of the colocated QSCAT and ocean bouys data set will explore differences of wind stress, wind speed and direction.
