Abstract: This report summarizes the results of the MEOScat Phase-I Study. The goal of the study is to identify initial concept options for a next generation wind scatterometer system to operate in the post-SeaWinds timeframe. In order to meet the future requirements of scientific and operational users, a variety of approaches for improving wind vector products (relative to previous systems) are examined. Special emphasis is placed on addressing concept options that operate at higher altitudes in order to improve the temporal revisit time.
