Airborne 2.25-cm wavelength radar backscatter measurements of low-wind-speed sea conditions were obtained off the coast of Texas in January 1971. These data are compared with unpublished NASA 2.25-cm backscatter measurements recorded over the Atlantic in 1970. The two data sets were in general agreement and supported results previously reported by other authors which showed the absence of a saturation effect at this wavelength. Analyses of these data using computerized clustering techniques indicated that a wind speed measurement accuracy of 5-7 knots is an operational potential.
