This viewer combines scatterometer wind data from ASCAT on Metop-B and Metop-C (12.5 km coastal wind products thinned to 25 km), and HSCAT on HY-2B and HY-2C (25 km wind products). Note that the CFOSAT winds are currently not shown in the viewer since they have reduced quality and rather varying wind speed biases due to instrument instabilities and drifts. The last 22 hours of data is shown in the plot. The overview plot shows color coded wind speed measurements. If you click somewhere in the plot, a picture appears showing the most recent scatterometer winds in more detail. Older data can be displayed as well when available. For more information on the individual products please follow the links in the menu on the right hand side.
