This product is the collective work of a team from the Department of Oceanography from Space, including
the CERSAT, at the Institut Francais pour l'Exploitation de la Mer
(IFREMER). It is based on the raw scatterometer data provided by the European Space Agency (ESA) for ERS-1 and ERS-2, and by
the Physical Oceanography Data Active Archive Center
(PO.DAAC) at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) that we thank gratefully. Funding by ESA and
IFREMER is also gratefully acknowledged. We also acknowledge the WOCE International Project
Office and the WOCE Data Information Unit for
their support when creating this DVD and the National
Oceanographic Data Center for duplicating and distributing this DVD.
We also request a reprint of any papers or reports published using these
data, in order tu update our reference archive and to improve our knowledge of the
oceanographic community's needs.
