Dear sir/ma'am

I am interested in using the NCEP reanalysis wind data to generate wind stress fields in my region of interest. I would like to know if there is there any scaterometer data assimilation for the NCEP reanalysis I or II.  I found a report on NCEP/NCAR reanalysis on the website describing the assimilation of SSMI satellite data for wind speeds, but this works for me because this satellite acquires data from microwaves. If so, could you specify which satellite is used ? Are there any dataset that do not assimilate scaterometer data ?


Thank you for your help.

Is NCEP/NCAR reanalysis more accurate in summer (JJA) than in winter (DJF) in the stratosphere and troposphere in the northern hemisphere? How about in the southern hemisphere? Thanks.
