AbstractWe compare image quality and radiometric calibration of several RADARSAT ScanSAR processors to assess impact on ocean wind retrieval. To address the relative state of ScanSAR processing, we arranged to have several ocean scenes processed by four different ScanSAR processors. We found some variability in image quality and radiometric calibration. Nevertheless, ScanSAR images should be able to provide useful high-resolution wind field information at near-synoptic scales.
