attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This dataset is derived under the Cross-Calibrated Multi-Platform (CCMP) project and contains a value-added monthly mean ocean surface wind and pseudostress to approximate a satellite-only climatological data record. The CCMP datasets combine cross-calibrated satellite winds obtained from Remote Sensing Systems (REMSS) using a Variational Analysis Method (VAM) to produce a high-resolution (0.25 degree) gridded analysis. The CCMP data set includes cross-calibrated satellite winds derived from SSM/I, SSMIS, AMSR-E, TRMM TMI, QuikSCAT, SeaWinds, WindSat and other satellite instruments as they become available from REMSS.
