OSI SAF Oceansat-2 L2 winds Data Record
Product status: CDR released
The OSCAT scatterometer onboard the Oceansat-2 satellite, launched in September 2009 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), provided observations until February 2014.

Reprocessed Oceansat-2 L2 25 km and 50 km winds Climate Data Records (CDR) have been created covering the period from December 2009 until February 2014, using the latest state-of-the-art wind retrieval algorithms. Scatterometer data have been collocated with ECMWF ERA-Interim winds and scatterometer level 2 wind products have been created at 25-km (doi:10.15770/EUM_SAF_OSI_0010) and 50-km (doi:10.15770/EUM_SAF_OSI_0011) swath grids. The reprocessed data, in BUFR and NetCDF format, will be available soon online from the EUMETSAT Data Centre after registration. For now, the data are available on request from KNMI.
