COAPS NSCAT Global Daily Pseudo-Stress vectors using Variational Method with Generalized Cross Validation

Daily fields of pseudo-stress are produced using a variational approach (direct minimization) with tuning parameters determined using Generalized Cross-Validation (GCV). These products are on a 1x1-deg grid. The scatterometer winds, and these gridded winds, are calibrated to a height of 10 m. This approach utilizes the NSCAT overpasses as well as our weighted 8-day fields, and should be considered as an improved (research quality) data set.

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

Please Note: Routines to read the NetCDF formatted files can be found here.
