WaCM features a Ka-band pencil-beam Doppler scatterometer able to map ocean winds and currents globally. We review the principles behind the WaCM measurement and the requirements driving the mission.  ...  The Winds and Currents Mission (WaCM) is a proposed approach to meet the need identified by the NRC Decadal Survey for the simultaneous measurements of ocean vector winds and currents.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The research was partially carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under a contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (80NM0018D0004  ...

2020 Remote Sensing  
This is useful for the study of air-sea interactions, but must be accounted for when using scatterometer winds for weather prediction.  ...  Surface current comparisons show that the Ka-band Current Geophysical Model Function (CGMF) needs to include wind drift currents, which could not be estimated with prior data sets.  ...  Acknowledgments: The data collection and partial research presented in the paper was carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under contract with the National Aeronautics  ...

Dependence of radar backscatter on the energetics of the air-sea interface

10th Annual International Symposium on Geoscience and Remote Sensing  
In 1978 a microwave radar scatterometer onboard SEASAT, the first oceanographic satellite, used an algorithm known as SASSI to infer wind velocity from the measured radar returns.  ...  This study evaluates environmental effects on the functional form, which relates radar echoes from the sea surface to the sea surface wind vector.  ...  li In the WAVES87 experiment, the Ku-band scatterometer was mounted on an antenna rotator and extended away from the tower about 8m on a boom.  ...
