What was the purpose of WISE?

Despite a number of technical, logistic, and RFI problems, the WInd and Salinity Experiment 2000 (WISE 2000) provided for the first time in many years, new data to better understand the effects of the wind in the emissivity of the sea at L-band. The experimental results confirmed the existing experimental data [Hollinger, 1971] and reduced their associated error bars.

The objective of WInd and Salinity Experiment 2001 (WISE 2001) was:

  • to get more data points and better wind speed (WS) measurements so as to reduce the sensitivity to WS uncertainty
  • to study the sea state stability by looking at a series of brightness temperatures so as to improve the determination of the sensitivity of the brightness temperatures to wind speed as a function of incidence angle.
