Review the methodologies used to produce a high temporal and spatial resolution global ocean wind forcing product based on scatterometer observations, ERA*, by evaluating the associated bias and variability of the stress equivalent wind (U10S) and wind stress fields.
|Results||The new approach taken to calculate the scatterometer correction locally improves the correction w.r.t the previous method. Given the better temporal coverage at higher latitudes the new approach is considered more robust.|
