Current version: OWDP v1.1, February 2013
The OSCAT Wind Data Processor (OWDP) is a software package written in Fortran 90 for handling data from the scatterometer instrument onboard Oceansat-2 (OSCAT). OWDP generates surface winds based on OSCAT backscatter data.
It allows performing the ambiguity removal with the Two-dimensional Variational Ambiguity Removal (2DVAR) method and it supports the Multiple Solution Scheme (MSS).
The output of OWDP consists of wind vectors which represent surface winds within the ground swath of the scatterometer.
