Wind/wave products

The wind/wave products are computed with:

  • altimeter data used to compute Significant Wave Heights (SWH) and wind velocity. Those parameters are obtained by analyzing the shape and intensity of the altimeter radar beam reflected from the sea surface (radar echo).
  • SWIM and SCAT measurements from the CFOSAT mission: added to the nadir measurement, these instruments are able to compute spectra from which are extracted several parameters.
