摘要
The microwave scatterometer on the Haiyang-2A (HY-2A) satellite is designed to provide global sea surface wind field data. The accuracy of HY-2A scatterometer wind retrievals is determined through various comparisons with moored buoys and the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF) reanalysis data. These comparisons were made in wide regions, including open sea and coastal areas, over a four-month period from January to March 2012 and August 2012. The retrieved wind speed results agree well with in situ observations and model data with respective biases -0.19 m s(-1) and 0.01 m s(-1) and root mean square error 2.02 m s(-1) and 1.81 m s(-1). However, the wind direction errors are a little higher. The overall bias and root mean square deviation of wind direction are -2.24 degrees, 1.74 degrees, and 40.28 degrees, 38.56 degrees, respectively. The wind speed and direction residuals are higher in low- and high-wind speed ranges. In addition, the wind speed and direction are relatively more accurate for open sea than those in coastal regions.
