ERS Wind Scatterometer data is provided through the ESA EO Portal, via the Fast Registration procedure.

Please, always refer to this source for up-to-date information.

ERS-2 Wind Scatterometer Level 2.0 data are available as:

  • High resolution [25 Km]  ASPS format
  • Nominal resolution [50 km] ASPS format
  • Nominal resolution [50 km]  UWI format (to keep the compatibility with previous data formats, see the table below).

Detailed tables reporting the total number of missing Level 2 Orbits for each cycle are available through the Quality Report Pages on the ESA/SPPA web portal.

 A useful resource regarding data availability and quality, is the “Scatt Quality Readme” file
