The aim of this section of the wiki (under development) is to provide information on the main satellite-derived wind datasets including how they are derived, used, where to go for further information or to access derivation software, monitoring etc. In some cases information is provided via links to avoid duplicating efforts elsewhere. Aside from the benefit to people getting started in this field, the pages can be used to summarise the current status and highlight where further development might be required (e.g. in AMV derivation) and to facilitate better interaction with research groups (both issues raised at IWW10).

The links provided above are the best places to start if you want to learn more about specific satellite-derived wind datasets. For other useful websites and more general training in satellite meteorology follow the links below:

WMO Vlab Virtual Laboratory for Training and Education in Satellite Meteorology (VLab) is a global network of specialized training centres and meteorological satellite operators working together to meet user needs for increased skills and knowledge in using satellite data.
WMO space-based GOS Useful page providing links to satellite status and details of current and future instruments
MetED (COMET) A free collection of hundreds of training modules for the geoscience community
EUMETRAIN International training project sponsored by EUMETSAT to support and increase the use of meteorological satellite data
EUMETCAL The European virtual organisation for meteorological training
NOAA/NESDIS Outreach Links to resources within NESDIS and NOAA which may be of interest to students, educators, and anyone interested in learning more about our Earth-Sun environment.
CIMSS satellite blog Case studies of recent interesting events
