dc.description.abstract Global mapping of near surface ocean winds is crucial for many meteorological, oceanographic and atmospheric studies. The microwave emission from the ocean surface is elliptically polarized and the degree of polarizationand angle is a function of the surface wind speed and direction...A summary of all the ocean polarimetric data vs. wind speed and incidence angle from three flights in 1994 and eight flights in 1995 is presented. en_US
