Wind speed from Sentinel-1 images


I am just wondering if the wind speed over ocean can be inferred from S1 Level-1 GRD data? There currently isn’t any OCN products available for where I am looking. I have followed instructions to use the wind field estimation, but it seems to only give wind direction? Maybe I am doing it wrong.

If anyone could give any guidance it’d be much appreciated.

Thank you!

When you load the results there should be numbers beside the arrows denoting the wind speed - but sometimes they are hard to see, particularly if you export them.

I was having similar problems, try loading the wind speed results like using the steps in my last post here:

Great, thanks for this! I can see the layer now.

please don’t post the same issue over various topics.
