  • Description:
    "This report describes the statistical analyses of various wind sensor colocations drawn from radiosonde, aircraft, ASDAR, and satellite data collected since October 1977. Two quantities were primarily used for analysis: the monthly mean wind speed difference (BIAS) between two sensors in a particular type of colocation, and the monthly root mean square vector difference (RMSVE) between these two sensors. Further analyses were made of the BIAS and RMSVE as a function of separation distance (or difference in observation time) between the colocated sensors, altitude of the colocations, and time. A rough comparison among sensors is given, along with a greater in-depth study of colocations involving Japanese satellite data"--Introduction
