[DOI: 10.21982/M8J91V] Matlab CMOD5 Model Function and Compass Simulation Code
Long, David
Code package includes a Matlab implementation of the CMOD5 geophysical function relating V-polarization C-band backscatter to wind speed and direction as a function of incidence angle and antenna beam azimuth angle, as well as code to implement a simple wind retrieval scheme to estimate wind from multiple backscatter measurements. A compass simulation for both the fan-beam and scanning pencil-beam satellite measurement schemes are included.
