AbstractC-band ocean wind retrieval model functions driven by buoy or scatterometer wind vectors are favourably compared with well-calibrated multipolarization data acquired by an airborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR). It is apparent that currently available hybrid C-band models will provide a good starting point for RADARSAT-2 SAR data utilization for marine applications and a basis for improved C-band ocean wind retrieval model functions.
