OSWT Research and Publications

The primary objective of the Ocean Surface Winds Team (OSWT) is to provide science support for remotely-sensed ocean surface wind products through product development, product validation, product improvement and user education and outreach.  Its objective is to improve utilization of these data within NOAA and to provide guidance and support in planning for current and future missions. These products primarily address NOAA's mission goals of "Serve Society's Needs for Weather and Water Information" and "Support the Nation's Commerce with Information for Safe, Efficient, and Environmentally Sound Transportation".  The OSWT works closely with operational forecasters in the NWS and other parts of NOAA, and thus, much of its research, development and validation is in support of the near real-time product stream. In support of these activities OSWT operates several near real-time satellite product processing systems and supports the Ocean Winds flight experiment program with the NOAA P-3 aircraft.
