Comparison of sea surface wind speeds derived from Bhaskara-II SAMIR data with seatruth measurements

N.K. Viswambharan, M.V. Rao, L.V.G. Rao


The values of wind speed retrieved from Bhaskara-II SAMIR data are compared with those obtained from sea-truth measurements from 3 to 10 June, 1982. The retrieved values, in general, are found to be slightly higher than the sea-truth values. They matched fairly well with the sea-truth when the wind speed is higher and it is felt that an improved prediction of satellite orbits and operation of SAMIR in alternate mode would yield better results from sea-truth compaigns
