wind measurement

EUMETSAT NWP SAF mesoscale wind data assimilation workshop

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis

Satellite observations have been fundamental in improving weather forecast skill over the past two decades on all terms, while few high-quality wind observations were present in the Global Observing System. To depict and initialize the flow on scales smaller than 500 km, wind observations are essential, however, and adding satellite wind observations for predicting dynamical weather has proven to be beneficial. But how are we going to exploit all these wind observations?

ISS-RapidScat Mission set to begin in fall 2014

ISS-RapidScat scatterometer instrument

NASA’s International Space Station ISS-RapidScat scatterometer instrument platform is scheduled to be launched during the fall of 2014. It is designed to replace its predecessor QuickScat which has been in operation since 1999 on board the ISS. QuickScat collected and archived 400,000 measurements over 90 percent of the Earth’s surface on a daily basis. The data is used to calibrate measurements of other satellites.
