Product status: second version of 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.

A new version of the reprocessed Oceansat-2 L2 25 km and 50 km winds Climate Data Records (CDR) was released in 2024. The records cover the full mission history from December 2009 until February 2014, using the latest state-of-the-art wind retrieval algorithms. Scatterometer data have been collocated with ECMWF ERA5 winds and scatterometer level 2 wind products have been created at 25-km (doi:10.15770/EUM_SAF_OSI_0018) and 50-km (doi:10.15770/EUM_SAF_OSI_0019) swath grids. The reprocessed data, in BUFR and NetCDF format, are available online from the EUMETSAT Data Centre after registration.
