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 :
Coverage maps of Sigma0 mean per beams
Version without filters on latitudes :
Number of points per value
Sigma0 mean by incidences
This section provide statistics on incidences angles of SWIM sensor.
Backscatter of SWIM sensor as function of ECMWF pas 0125 wind speed (scatter plots)
Backscatter of SWIM sensor as function of ECMWF model wind speed with GMF
Comparison by plots grids of ecmwf wind speed and CFOSAT SIGMA0 beams
Sigma standard deviation for all incidences
Sigma standard deviation mean for all incidences
Sigma standard deviation for boxes sides
