AbstractA combined satellite dataset consisting of nine altimeter, 12 radiometer, and two scatterometer missions of wind speed and wave height is calibrated in a consistent manner against NDBC data and independently validated against a separate buoy dataset. The data are investigated for stability as a function of time. Instances where there are discontinuities or drift in the data are identified and accounted for in the calibration. The performance of each of the instruments at extreme values is investigated using quantile–quantile comparisons with buoy data. The various instruments are cross validated at matchup locations where satellite ground tracks cross. The resulting calibrated and cross-validated dataset is believed to represent the largest global oceanographic dataset of its type, which includes multiple instrument types calibrated in a similar fashion.
