Title: Ku-Band Ocean Backscatter Functions for Surface Wind Retrieval
Authors: Nghiem, S.V.

Citation: Lincoln, NE
Abstract: For remote sensing of ocean surface wind, Ku-band scatterometer technology has been demonstrated and will be used to monitor global ocean wind fields from spaceborne sensors such as the NASA Scatterometer (NSCAT). Algorithms for wind velocity retrieval from scatterometer data utilize absolute radar returns and relative azimuth modulations of backscatter. The NUSCAT-SWADE data base is used.
