A global sea state dataset from spaceborne synthetic aperture radar wave mode data

Xiao-Ming Li & Bingqing Huang
This dataset consists of ocean wave integral parameters of significant wave height (SWH) and mean wave period (MWP) data derived from the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) onboard the ENVISAT satellite over its full life cycle (2002-2012) covering the global ocean. Both parameters are calibrated and validated against buoy data. Cross-validation between the ASAR SWH and radar altimeter (RA) data is also performed to ensure that the SAR-derived wave height data are of the same...
