Pitufa’s Wind Atlas and Windrose Browser

Check out our Atlas of Prevailing Ocean Winds!

As a convenient alternative to pilot charts, our site provides an interactive wind atlas and windrose browser. Unlike classical pilot charts, this atlas is based on satellite data (uniformly-sampled, unbiased), insofar similar to Jimmy Cornell`s Ocean Atlas (but that one is on paper and pricey…). We visualize world-wide ocean wind data from the SeaWinds scatterometer onboard the QuikSCAT satellite monthly-averaged over ten years. Data taken from Climatology of Global Ocean Winds—COGOW.
