25km Resolution Wind Swaths on Midori2

RSS's Ku-2001 swath data sets are sub-sampled to remove data fields that are less likely to be used (e.g., most of the header, unselected ambiguities, and a condensed rain flag). Retained fields are wind speed, wind direction, time, latitude, and longitude. The scatterometer winds are calibrated to a height of 10 m. The data sets are also regrouped from the original one file per orbit to one file per day. There is no modification of the data. The goal is to provide essential data in a more user-friendly format. The data set should be considered research quality.

NetCDF libraries are required to access the data, and can be obtained from UNIDATA.
