Wind Stress, QuikSCAT SeaWinds, 0.125°, Global, Science Quality, 1999-2009 (3 Day)

NOAA CoastWatch distributes science quality wind stress data in zonal, meridional, modulus, and wind stress curl sets. This data begins with wind velocity measurements from the SeaWinds instrument onboard NASA's QuikSCAT satellite. SeaWinds is a microwave scatterometer designed to measure surface winds over the global ocean. NOAA CoastWatch processes wind velocity to wind stress and wind stress curl. (This is a 3 day composite.)
