Thank you for your attention

Hi there,

I know I’m a bit late to the conversation, but since @marpet said there are new features for SAR processing , has the wind field estimation wizard improved? As far as I’ve read, it is suitable for ENVISAT data, but gives some pretty bad results for S1.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Actually, it should be also good for S1 data. However, maybe it is better if you describe your problem in the s1tbx category a new thread. Then the right guys, who can answer, will see it your question more likely.
