Pencil beam Wind Processor (PenWP) released

PenWP generates surface winds from backscatter data from the SeaWinds (on QuikSCAT or ADEOS-II), OSCAT (on Oceansat-2), HSCAT (on HY-2A) and RapidScat (on the International Space Station) scatterometer instruments. It replaces the existing wind processors for SeaWinds (SDP) and OSCAT (OWDP) and is designed as a generic wind processor for all existing and future pencil beam Ku-band scatterometer instruments. See the Scatterometer software pages for more information.
