QuikSCAT Cal/Val Swath Data

QuikSCAT Cal/Val Swath Data Sets

Several forms of QuikSCAT swath data will be available on-line. Links to descriptions of the data should be available. Some of the data sets are subsets of the raw data, which we expect many people will find less cumbersome.

Information on Anticipated Data Sets

The data that will (tentatively) be provided are described. Basic essentials are the times and regions of coverage, and the expected delivery date or delay in delivery. Below are links to descriptions of the anticipated data sets. A link to the data set will be added when the data are available.

Detailed Information on Swath Data Sets

Documentation on data structures (e.g., layout of data, units, scaling factors) and meta-data will be developed by the providers of the data sets. If and when available, links to this information will be added.

Ease of Access

Please keep in mind the need for read routines to extract data that are not stored in ASCII: otherwise there are likely to be cal/val team members that will not be able to read data in a timely fashion. Alternatively, we anticipate access to these data sets through DODS
