Description 
Summary

Data were collected by the European Space Agency. Wind speed inside accuracy window: 1-28 m/s. Product size: 19 grid points in ground range, 19 grid points in azimuth (21112 kbytes), 500 km ground range, 500 km azimuth. Nominal accuracy: 5 km in range, 5 km in azimuth. Spatial resolution: 50 km in ground range, 50 km in azimuth. Product grid mesh: 25 x 25 km. Projection: ground range projection on a curved Earth surface as given by the GEM16 Earth model coordinate system: two-dimensional Cartesian ground range azimuth grid defined by spacecraft and antenna beam pointing.
