Detail View: NASA Scientific Visualization Studio Collection: Wind Anomalies during El Nino/La Nina Event of 1997-1998 (WMS)

Title: 
Wind Anomalies during El Nino/La Nina Event of 1997-1998 (WMS)
Instrument: 
TRMM/3B4XRT
Description: 
Color scale for wind speed anomalies. The values range from 0 to 1.5 meters per second. The direction of the wind anomaly in each cell is shown by an arrow.
Abstract: 
The El Nino/La Nina event in 1997-1999 was particularly intense, but was also very well observed by satellites and buoys. Deviations from normal winds speeds and directions of the were computed using data from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSMI) on the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite.
