In this page, analysis are performed with respect to CFOSAT SWIM CWWIC radar parameters L2 in nominal macro cycles. Some sections have "Details" sub-sections. They are for advanced users, but access is not restricted.

Data set statistics

This section presents general information on the data set such as its geographical and temporal distributions.

Distribution of Sigma 0 values :

Nadir :

Coverage maps of Sigma0 mean per beams

Version without filters on latitudes :

Number of points per value

Sigma0 mean by incidences

Incidences angles

This section provide statistics on incidences angles of SWIM sensor.

Backscatter of SWIM sensor as function of ECMWF pas 0125 wind speed (scatter plots)
