Description

RELWIND_SPD-AUX, the magnitude of the vector difference of surface current (from VELPT measurements) from wind velocity (from METBK measurements). This is the fundamental windspeed variable used in the METBK toga-coare algorithms. It is anticipated that the wind measurements will be roughly each minute and that the current measurements will be broadcast to that resolution.
