January 19, 2005 1100-1500 - Level 1 residual wind Sector scans

Each frame in the animation shows a Doppler lidar sector scan of residual radial velocities taken just above the surface of the ocean. Tick marks indicate 2 km spacing and labels show latitude and longitude. All velocities are in m/s.

Stepping through the animation, see the time stamp for each frame. Cool colors indicate flow toward the lidar and warm colors indicate flow away from the lidar.
