Mean Wind Fields QuikSCAT data including surface stress
QuikSCAT surface wind data are given on 0.5 degree grid with daily frequency. Besides surface ocean winds the surface wind stress, divergence and horizontal curl of surface stress are provided as well. Statistical interpolation was employed to fill in the spatial gaps in the satellite coverage. The data originated from Ifremer/CERSAT.
surface wind speed (m/s), U wind (m/s), V wind (m/s), surface wind stress (Pa), zonal surface wind stress (Pa), meridional surface wind stress (Pa), horizontal surface wind divergence (1/s), horizonal wind stress curl (Pa/m)
