ISS-RapidScat Artist Concept

Dr. Mark Bourassa is leading the NASA Ocean Vector Winds Science Team that will work with RapidSCAT data. The RapidSCAT instrument is scheduled to launch Sept. 19 and will be attached to the International Space Station. One novel use for this mission is the examination of the diurnal cycle. Other more typical applications are studies of hurricanes (very early stages of tropical development) and ocean upwelling. Dr. Bourassa will be attending the launch.
