  • Description:
    The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-2 (AMSR2) on board the Global Change Observation Mission-Water (GCOM-W) launched in May 2012 by the Japanese Exploration Agency (JAXA) is acquiring earth electromagnetic radiation for the purpose of monitoring Earth's environmental and climate system. The ocean vector winds team part of the National Oceanic and atmospheric administration (NOAA), National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR), has exploited AMSR2 observations of brightness temperature (T-b) to develop an environmental data record (EDR), which includes several oceanic parameters. The purpose of this paper is to show the validation results for these geophysical parameters when compared to other active and passive microwave sensors and numerical weather models.
