Three new wind processing software packages have been released recently: AWDP3.2, PenWP2.2, and CWDP0.9.
AWDP v3.2 is a minor release of the ASCAT and ERS scatterometer wind data processor; it includes an improved interface and handling of the 2DVAR Ambiguity Removal to streamline and simplify the processing.
PenWP v2.2 is a minor release of the Ku-band pencil beam scatterometer wind data processor; it includes an improved interface and handling of the 2DVAR Ambiguity Removal to streamline and simplify the processing. Moreover it is adapted to process OSCAT data from ScatSat-1(improved ISRO data version 1.1.3).
CWDP v0.9 is the first beta version of the CFOSAT Wind Data Processor. CFOSAT is the French-Chinese ocean observation satellite, to be launched in autumn 2018. This software version can process simulated CFOSAT input data, a simulator is included. After launch a new CWDP version capable of processing real data will be released. We stimulate users to provide feedback, which will help us to improve the software in future releases.
Note that this software is developed and supported by the OSI SAF and distributed by the NWP SAF (https://www.nwpsaf.eu/site/software/scatterometer/).
