Global seasonal cycles of the wind and wind stress fields estimated from the 8-yr record (September 1999-August 2007 of wind measurements by the NASA Quick Scatterometer (QuikSCAT) are presented. While this atlas, referred to here as the Scatterometer Climatology of Ocean Winds (SCOW), consists of 12 variables, the focus here is on the wind stress and wind stress derivative (curl and divergence) fields. SCOW seasonal cycles are compared with seasonal cycles estimated from NCEP-NCAR reanalysisdoi:10.1175/2008jpo3881.1 fatcat:qbvek4mdmfetraboyif37q7a74
