Ocean surface currents and winds are closely coupled essential climate variables and should be observed simultaneously to understand air–sea interactions. Under NASA’s Instrument Incubator Program (IIP), we have built a wide-swath Doppler scatterometer, DopplerScatt, intended to serve as an airborne prototype for a future wind and current spaceborne missions. The cover shows data collected at the outflow of the Mississippi River into Barataria Bay, where the river releases significant sediment, as shown in the lower-left Sentinel-3 image. The lower right image shows the DopplerScatt estimated neutral winds, which are noticeably modified by the currents. The upper panels show the east (left) and north (right) surface current components. In addition to the plume recirculation into Barataria Bay, one can observe a strong submesoscale front coinciding with a front in sediment concentration. View this paper.
