  • Description:
    "In June 1978, an experimental oceanographic satellite known as SEASAT-A was launched. The main objectives of this satellite program include ocean global measurements of the surface wind vectors, surface temperature, wave heights and marine geoid. The satellite carries, among five microwave sensors, a SEASAT-A Satellite Scatterometer (SASS), which can be used to infer surface wind vectors over the world's oceans. Algorithms for inferring surface wind stress and wind vectors have been under development (Jones et al. 1978)"--Introduction.
